Description from store Forces Chrome to open new tabs instead of pop-up windows and/or links in the same tab by default instead of new or background tab. If you hate when you click the link and Chrome opens it in a new or a new background tab, or even in a new window, then this extension is for you.

Version 2.6: - Fixed some cases where popups could not open same tab due to extension upgrade to manifest v3 Version 2.5: - Fix some bug - Fix some page can't open popup same tab Version 2.4: - Add new feature: - View all link open popup. - Manage all tabs current window. - Share link of tab on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook.

  • (2023-10-10) Bernhard Krautschneider: Broken in new chrome versions. Also it has some funny code background.js when facebook.com is opened but I don't know if that code is legit.
  • (2023-09-29) Alexander Gruber: Used to love this extension, but now it's functionality is erratic and is killing my workflow. It just opens tabs up in random windows if it works at all. Version 2.8 is garbage.Guess I'll have to look for an alternative.
  • (2023-09-28) Tashi Sherpa: Opens links in the same tab (reuses tab). I can't believe this has to be an extension though. Ridiculous. Minus one star until the developer addresses data collection.
  • (2023-08-22) Gea-Suan Lin: The latest version starts to track users, which is a different claim to "Privacy practices" page: https://abpe.org/system/media_attachments/files/110/932/276/340/680/182/original/9d022707f9c0ca4a.png The "openlinkinsametab.com" domain is registered on 2023-07-20T05:43:05Z, according to whois.

  • (2023-07-31) Wilford Lubowitz: Nice extension!
  • (2023-07-31) Adrian Bolboceanu: Been using it day to day for at least 5 years, worked flawlessly. When the upgrade broke the functionality, I've emailed the developer and he kept me updated on the progress, and solved the issue quite quickly.
  • (2023-07-30) Khánh Hồng: Not Bad. it's work.

  • (2023-07-29) work for me!
  • (2023-07-28) Jason Monsen: Good extension, but currently having issues with a recent Chrome update. It seems like the extension doesn't fully load on some tabs, leaving the functionality erratic. Using Sergiy's test webpage I find that when it does not work, reloading the page will fix the issue (at least for that tab). Also had problems with Edge, meaning this is probably a bug introduced with a core Chromium change. Issue started somewhere in the last 2-3 weeks. Looking at our install logs vs release notes, this likely started with Chrome Stable 114.0.5735.198/199 at the absolute earliest. All further updates have continued to have the issue. This is on Win10 Pro x64. I've not tested Mac nor Linux yet. I was looking for a way to put in a bug report but this seems like the only option. Hopefully I can update this rating once fixed since the extension is perfect when working properly.

  • (2023-07-27) Jonathon Picone: Worked great for years, does not work well anymore. Even with the new update it did not fix the issue.
  • (2023-07-27) Christopher Keim: This extension was great until today, when it stopped doing the ONE thing it's meant to do. What happened, did you load it with spyware?
  • (2023-07-27) Frank Ki: Partially broken with (since) Chrome 115.0.5790.102 (32-Bit). Same behaviour in Chrome 114 and 116 (beta). I think the latest extension update is causing the problem, not Google Chrome itself. Still not fixed in 2.5. Can you please make version 2.3 available for download as crx?
  • (2023-07-26) Joe Springer: Loved this extension until it stopped working for me. I use it primarily for my tickets in TDX (team dynamics) and as of this week it has stopped working. When you open a new window it doesn't create it in a tab, it's quite frustrating after being so used to it working as intended!
  • (2023-07-26) Adam Eckert: Looks like there is an issue with pop ups not opening in a new tab on the first attempt, if try a second time it works. This used to work with no issues, but started happening. using CRM MS Dynamics website.
  • (2023-07-25) Stacey Finelli: Worked perfectly for years, however, recent update has caused it to fail. Very disappointing.
  • (2023-07-25) Jean Ellis: As of last update, this doesnt work anymore
  • (2023-07-25) Emily Costello: This was amazing for years & my entire work department uses it. However, in the past week, it hasn't been working. Looks like an update was recently done.
  • (2023-07-25) Megalomaniacat: Worked flawlessly for years, now over the past two weeks it fails 50-75% of the time

  • (2023-02-17) Scott: This does not work for Reddit as a PWA. For whatever reason, click on notifications icon in Reddit opens a tab in a new window... so annoying. I thought this extension would force the opening of the notification in the PWA I have open already.
  • (2023-01-06) Suman Saurabh: very handy
  • (2023-01-04) Aleksander Fijołek: Very nice extension <3

  • (2022-08-04, v:2.2) Steven Gribbin: Works from Google and Bing pages, doesn't from Yahoo
    This app opens links in the same tab when clicking links from a search from Google.com or Bing.com. However, when clicking links from a search from Yahoo.com, it opens the links in a new tab. Of course, I prefer Yahoo as my home page so this affects me. I know that it is possible for it to work in Yahoo as I had an older extension (of course, that google removed form extensions) that worked for all search pages. It would be great to if you could make whatever tweak is necessary to solve this issue. Thanks

  • (2021-07-29, v:2.2) Arden S.: Not working?
    Hello. I got really excited this existed as Etsy apparently has this forced setting where any item you click opens a new tab every single time--its made it almost unusable for me and keeps crashing my computer and brain. I thought this would address this (its supposed to stop websites from auto opening new tabs, right?) But its not doing anything. Is this only for intitial pop ups and turning them into tabs? It cant block new tabs from opening from links on sites? Etsy forces a new tab open when you click on a link to a product even just for a sneak peak. Then u end up with 50 tabs just from looking for soemthing, and lose the thing u were looking for. Is this someting the extension is supposed to address? Thanks a lot. I really appreicate it. If I can get this to make etsy usable for me I'll def be donating. thanks

  • (2021-07-14, v:2.2) Alex Thompson: force open in new tabs instead of reusing existing tabs
    There are some cases where the plugin forces the pop-up to open in a new tab, which is perfect. However, when opening multiple pop-ups they all open in the same tab, reusing it, instead of each opening in their own tab. If there is a way you could add the option to force every popup to open in its own individual tab that would be really appreciated.
  • (2021-06-02, v:2.2) Zalmen Freund: Open Next to the Current Tab
    Hello Thanks for your so beneficial extension. I would like to suggest a upgrade. It would be very beneficial if you can implement that the new pop up tab should always open next to the current tab and not by the end of the tabs Thanks
  • (2021-05-07, v:2.2) Darren Munson: Needs to be re-enabled every day
    As above, each day when I start up, popups open in a new window, I disable, then re-enable the checkbox, and it works again. Probably due to a Chrome update, but can it be fixed? Thanks.

  • (2020-11-25, v:2.2) Miroslav Belák: Extension site access feature
    Dear developer, First of all, kudos for such much needed extension. Question. In extension settings there is a section called Site access. I had it set to "On all sites", thought the list of sites I would like the extension to run is low, therefore I tried to switch it to "On specific sites", or even to "On click". It appears the the extension ignores this setting. I wonder if this is the extension issue, or rather Chrome issue. For comparison other extensions seem to follow this setting flawlessly. Thank you for you reply!

  • (2020-09-18, v:2.2) Yu Cho: Dear developer,
    Thank you so much for developed such a wonderful extension. Could you consider to implement whiltelisting function to the next version? Because for some sites I do not want them to be opened as a new tab. e.g. for goole hangouts, if I checked "open pop-ups as a new tabs", then hangouts window can not pop up normally. Please have a look and I am really looking forward to adding whitelist function. Thanks again!
