Quick Lang Switch

by ankostis

Quickly switch keyboard language layout without showing the switcher popup. The language switcher popup by default takes ~0.7sec to appear, meaning that roughly 2-4 strokes are lost till the switch completes. This affects heavily users typing languages with non-latin based alphabets (e.g. Greek, Cyrilic, Arabic, Japanese), particularly when writting technical documents. This extension reduces the switching time to 1/10th of a second (on a 2019 PC). Tip: for facilitate typing while switching, assign the "Switch to next/previous input source" keyboard shortcut to a single keystroke, like [SysRq/Print] key.
