Both were uploaded in a Disabled State.

These macros are based in large part on the great macros written by
@kevin_funderburg. See Select Previously USED Safari Tab (not previous tab)

Primary Changes

The primary changes I made to @kevin_funderburg's macros:

  1. Extended to include both Safari and Chrome Browsers
  2. Added FireFox using a FF extension
