Feedly Background Articles

CRX id


Description from extension meta

Opens Feedly articles in a background tab on custom key press (hotkey)

Image from store Feedly Background Articles
Description from store Hate that Feedly's 'v' keyboard shortcut automatically switches focus to the new tab? Then this extension is for you! Press a custom hotkey (keyboard shortcut) when an article is 'focused' on Feedly to open the link in the background. The default hotkey is ';' Works best with 'j' and 'k' shortcuts to go forward and backward - and 'm' to mark as read/unread. A replacement for the loved but no longer working "Feedly Background Tab".

  • (2021-01-21, v:0.12) David Yang Yaumin Wu: not working as intended
    I'm on a Vivaldi version of chrome if that makes a difference.
  • (2021-01-20, v:0.12) Brent Wagner: Customize key and work in list mode,
    Request ability to customize activation key (I use h) and Ability to work when an article is selected, not just active. I use 'n' to scroll through articles. But, at least it is something. Thank you.
  • (2021-01-20, v:0.12) Øystein Sørvik: Customize key
    Since I'm not using an US keyboard the character ; is not a single key press. This extension consequently does nothing. Please allow us to customize the key.
