Opera browser hotkey idiocy

Discovered, that in Opera, to switch to next/prev tabs in a normal way, you have to press 【Ctrl+F6】 and【Ctrl+Shift+F6】. What a idiocy. (See: Opera Pain; Opera Browser Problems.) Or, in Opera 9.2 or before, press the 1 and 2 keys on the number pad. In Opera 9.5 or later, you have to Enable single-key shortcuts in the preference. (See: http://help.opera.com/Windows/10.63/en/keyboard.html.)

So, in AutoHotkey, i added these to be consistent with all my hotkeys for browsers. (the / and * on number pad to switch to prev/next tabs.)

;; Opera hotkeys
#IfWinActive ahk_class OperaWindowClass

; close window
$Pause::Send ^w

; prev tab
$NumpadDiv::Send ^+{F6}

; next tab
$NumpadMult::Send ^{F6}

See: AutoHotkey Basics and AutoHotkey Example Scripts.

Also, after several years of hearing Opera's stupid “mouse gestures”, today i took 5 min to read up what it is. See: http://help.opera.com/Windows/10.63/en/mouse.html. Rather idiotic.
