this works for me.

Interestingly enough, this is also the shortcut used by Safari and is  
has two problems: to invoke Apple-{ on a German keyboard requires  
Apple-Alt-8 (this is awkward) and, by default, it is preset in Global  
Systems Settings for "Universal Access: Turn zoom on/off" so does not  
work at all initially.

When using a German language Leopard, Safari uses Apple-Alt-ö and  
Apple-Alt-ä to change between tabs (which is still awkward but makes  
more sense).

We observed one redundant shortcut: Apple-<up> and Apple-<down> have  
the same function as <home> and <end> so, maybe, <home> and <end>  
might also make good shortcuts for changing between Tabs.
