How to effectively search for, and select, existing Google Chrome tabs from the keyboard?


Open up some tabs on various sites.
Open up a New Tab, and start typing a fragment of the URL in one of the other sites.

See something like this:

Note the red arrow to the Switch to this tab button I need to press, specifically from the keyboard, not using the mouse. When I reach for the mouse, my browser-use-productivity degrades.

How do I do that? https://superuser.com/a/1520693/106977 says I can Right-Arrow then press Return, but that is not what I want:

Is there some global shortcut that, when I type it, it will progressively narrow the list of open tabs I have based upon keywords typed in, very similar to what Google search does when you start typing into the search field? Note: I do not want to duplicate an existing tab: I want to switch quickly to one I already know is in an existing browser tab, without having to do a brute-force search through all of them.

Right now, if I press the Return key on that line, it essentially sort-of duplicates what I had typed in before which is typically a search phrase that would launch my default search engine.

The online help for this at https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/157179?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en does not mention this Switch to this tab button.

I’m open to installing Chrome Extensions to address this, but that would be a “software recommendation”. And besides, this probably should be built-into the Google Chrome base product.
