When auto-complete suggestions pop up, allow Tab key to cycle through the suggestions from top to bottom.

How to repeat:
Start typing SQL to invoke auto-complete. Press Tab key. It will behave like Enter and select first suggestion.

Suggested fix:
Make Tab key cycle through all the suggestions rather than applying first suggestion.

To be more explicit, Tab should cycle top to bottom, Shift+Tab should cycle bottom to top.

Thank you
