  • If you want to switch in between tabs then just swap your finger horizontally on the top tool bar. Please try it with one single finger. They have programmed this feature according to specific protocol. So don’t try to experiment it. If you follow some wrong gesture then it will simply discard the complete process.
  • You can now enter to Tab Switcher View by swapping/dragging your finger vertically down from toolbar. It can be used for faster switching too.
  • You may even open the drop down list by simply dragging the finger downwards from menu option.
