Re: A question about chrome devTool undock function for screen reader user

On a slightly related question, do you guys know how to reorder the
tabs in chrome?
I want the aXe tab to show up first, or at least as close to the start
of the tabs as possible (the only way to activate it that I have found
is to open dev tools, locate the tabs at the top and repeatedly press
ctrl-] to move to the next tab, unfortunately this is a slow process
since opening at least some of the tabs automatically shifts focus
away from the tabs into the tab panel and you have to arrow back up to
the tabs area before pressing ctrl-] again).
