Tabbing through google search results in Safari
View gist:032fea49818dc50d65f1c36f92b48f5d
For whatever very bad reason (likely related squeezing to every drop of ad revenue from their product), Google does not allow you to easily tab throug search results.

Super Guide to the split-window tmux Subcommand (and Beyond)

Guide overview

tmux, like other great software, is deceptive. On the one hand, it's fairly easy to get set up and start using right away. On the other hand, it's difficult to take advantage of tmux's adanced power features without spending some quality alone time with the manual. But the problem with manuals is that they aren't geared toward beginners. They are geared toward helping seasoned developers and computer enthusiasts quickly obtain the
