Apple's HIG have keyboard shortcuts section: http://goo.gl/p01u4
but they don't list tab switching keys, probably because they haven't 
updated HIG for a while.

Sections for Cmd+Shift+arrows read:

Right arrow: "Extend selection to the next semantic unit, typically the 
end of the current line."

Left arrow: "Extend selection to the previous semantic unit, typically the 
beginning of the current line."

As for tab swiching, if I remember correctly, the first app to introduce 
tabs as documents was Safari. It has Cmd+Shift+]/[ shortcuts (listed under 
Window menu). Some other apps on my system that use this combination are 
Terminal, iChat, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, MacVim, Aquamacs, and since 
yesterday, TextMate (http://blog.macromates.com/2010/textmate-1-5-10/).
