Skip over auto-completed parenthesis in Sublime Text 2

Found this gem here:

It has driven me crazy that there's no key combination in ST2 to jump to the outside of a () that has been auto-matched.
If you feel frustration when you see those characters, you may have had the same problem as I :).

Add this to your user keymap in Sublime Text:

{ "keys": ["tab"], "command": "move", "args": {"by": "characters", "forward": true}, "context":
    { "key": "following_text", "operator": "regex_contains", "operand": "^[)\"\\]]", "match_all": true },
    { "key": "auto_complete_visible", "operator": "equal", "operand": false }

And you will rest more easily.
