Description from extension meta

Open a link in a new tab, not in the same

Description from store With TabLink if you click a link, it's always opened in a new tab! So you don't have to use middle-click! This is very useful if you have a mouse without middle-button ATTENTION It doesn't work in new tab, history, downloads, extensions pages Please rate this extension if you like it ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Icon from http://dryicons.com

  • (2018-05-13) Ari Torres: best ext to open links in a new tab for me,since I use google's chrome in my laptop running linux,no windowze or mucOS
  • (2017-11-12) Dane Stotzer: I agree with the other reviews. It works as described, but it is limited. It does not work on all links. When it works it "always" opens a new tab even if you don't want it to. The real problem is that Chrome does not provide a setting to bring new tabs to the top. So many other browsers have this feature. It's a shame.

  • (2014-11-02) andre2509: nao funciona como eu esperava, tipo abrir outro video no youtube em outra aba, funcionou só no site de noticias uol, mas no portal terra nao funciona, isso quer dizer que nao vai funcionar na maioria dos sites. vou ter que esperar outra ou ficar garimpando a webstore e m ingles.
  • (2013-12-14) Chris Brislawn: Installed under OSX Mavericks. This extension does NOT enable the behavior I wanted, which is for browser focus to automatically follow the last link clicked, regardless of whether or not it's opened in a new tab. Instead, it opens EVERY link clicked in a new tab by default, which quickly leads to a huge number of open tabs. I was led to this extension by a Google search, but, while the description of its behavior on the DETAILS tab is accurate, I cannot imagine why anyone would want to enable this particular default behavior. Accordingly, I give it one star for poorly motivated functionality and lack of a compelling use-case.
  • (2013-07-27) Jason R: Just installed and tested it for the first time. It works for me, but I immediately decided I can only give it 3 stars. It should have an option to at least be able to have links always open in a background tab instead of a new tab. Put this toggle in, and I think I'll love it.
  • (2013-05-12) Manish Chacko: What a POS-restarted browser after adding extension and still didn't work and so removed it and came to review-had to readd to chrome just to add this review-totally worth it-I can now remove it again :)
  • (2013-03-19) Bullshit. Doesnt do a thing
  • (2011-10-26) D K (KundaKinte): Been waiting for this. Would be nice if you could maybe have certain sites open in same tab. "an exception list" Like banking sites. If i open a new tab with my bank site it logs me out.

  • (2017-07-28, v:0.4) Jim Graham: doesn't work
    I installed TabLink in Chrome Version 49.0.2623.112 (64-bit) and did a quick test, opening Facebook from the bookmarks bar. Instead of creating a new tab, it opened in the existing tab. Am I missing some settings for it somewhere? Thanks, Jim Graham, [email protected]
