Maybe it would be better for Konsole to be more like other apps in their 
emulation of the source of the tab paradigm, at least via a simple option. 
Tabs' origin is in a binder, pages in a "book", enabling one to quickly 
select a particular point in a (vertical) _stack_ or _layer_ of sheets or 
pages. Thus, at least arguably, the more sensible emulation is up/down, not 

Ctrl-Up/Ctrl-Down works in Mozilla products, my first exposure to tabs in any 
Linux environment, though not my first in a PC environment. (Alt-# in Quattro 
Pro for DOS was the first, just short of 3 decades ago.) Thus, because I 
spend more time in web browsers than all other tabbed apps combined, and with 
many many many tabs, than Konsole, keyboard tab switching in Konsole requires 
extra mental effort.
