  • (2021-05-07) Cad Delworth: Brilliant extension: forces Ivanti Service Manager Reports to open in TABS instead of pop-ups!
  • (2021-05-07) Songmin Yoon: Works exactly as described
  • (2021-04-13) Want Schnitzel: Sehr hilfreiche Erweiterung für iMacros. Einziges Manko, iMacros funktioniert nicht wenn es in einem neuen Tab anstelle in einem PopUp geöffnet wird, also muss man die Erweiterung kurz deaktivieren, iMacros öffnen und wieder aktivieren.
  • (2021-04-07) Aviv Chetrit: So nice with the programs that we use. No longer ending up with many windows open, but just keeps opening tabs and keeping things grouped together that way.
  • (2021-03-29) Haibo Xu: Amazing and long waited add-on!
  • (2021-03-10) ネロ: ブラウザをバックグラウンドで開くようにしてると、再度チェックを入れないと アンケートサイトがタブで開かないので、面倒。 コレを使いたいから、バックグラウンドで開くのをやめました。 うまく開かないことが多くなりました。 インストールするとまた別タブで開くようになりますが…面倒…。
  • (2021-03-01) Edward Maly: Sometimes it works sometimes id dosent.
  • (2021-02-14) Derek Matuszewski: Works great, something Chrome should just have built in.
  • (2021-02-05) Paul LaFlamme: This works excellent! Really good extension. I too use it for autotask.
  • (2021-02-04) Ricardo López: It does exactly what it's supposed to do and it's so easy to install and run i barely notice is even there. Thanks!
  • (2020-12-25) Aimee Alise: 在CSDN網站中無法運行,點擊鏈接還是會在新標籤頁中打開。
  • (2020-12-24) John T: Wish this extension worked all the time. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't, regardless of the website. Would love for this to work again! :(
  • (2020-12-18) Sorin Ionuț Sbârnea: Force tab in same window feature does not work with current Chrome even after reloading the page. Clicking gerrit build hyperlinks still open in new tab and they only have target="_blank" rel="noopener".
  • (2020-12-10) Nathan Ball: It is a life saver! Forcing my ticketing system to behave how I need it. The only bad thing I have found is it breaks Hangouts as it will not open in a tab. Work around, disable extension>open hangouts>enable extension. So Whitelisting/ignore list would get this extension 5 stars.
  • (2020-12-09) Optistar: One of the best chrome extensions, well done guys.
  • (2020-12-06) Jack Wu: works sometimes
  • (2020-11-25) Lukáš Slamka: It is very nice addon, just got a problem with Site access - Access on specific sites is not working. I wanted to specify only a few of sites, but now it is used on every site. Other than that, working as expected.
  • (2020-11-18) Jared Stokes: Works perfectly when it works! :)
  • (2020-11-17) Catalogus Office Zbigniew Toczek: excellent!!!!
  • (2020-11-03) Jasper Golze: Nice. Works like it should.
  • (2020-10-23) Sean Groves: This extension is GREAT, so much so that I just donated $20 to the developer for the impact it's had on my day to day work! One small issue is that when a new tab is opened, there are lots of times when I cannot right click any buttons on the screen to provide input. There is a simple workaround for this (I just have to move my cursor to the top of the window and drag it around a bit with my mouse and then am able to use right click on the button again). Would love this extension even more if this small bug was addressed.
  • (2020-10-23) Samuel Decker: Thank God--er, Sergiy-- for this extension. There is nothing else like it that works so perfectly. There is an application I work with professionally (AutoTask) that opens all links as pop-ups. Without this extension I would have scores of new browser windows open, instead of tabs. Thank you Sergiy!
  • (2020-10-22) Roberto Mora: thaks a lot ...!

  • (2020-10-12) Metal Cooler: Me gusto. Simplemente genial.
  • (2020-09-23) Trevor de Vries: Use it every day, for tickets I have to look at
  • (2020-09-18) Yu Cho: 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!

  • (2020-06-30) Девки: Очень хорошее расширение спасибо большое!
  • (2020-06-29) Terry: This extension is one of a kind. I agree with some reviews saying I wish it opened next to the current tab if possible and sometimes it needs to be turned off and on again but those are minor inconveniences for how well this extension works!
  • (2020-06-29) Deepak Naidu: Happy to have found this!!!
  • (2020-06-29) jesus sierra: Excelente
  • (2020-04-13) Jin Ho Shin: It is simple and has a functionality what i want. It is very good to me

  • (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.
  • (2021-03-10, v:2.2) Matt Frost: Stopped working

  • (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!

    Hi, Not sure what has happened but as of the last week or so the extension now does not do as it is supposed to. I have to manually turn the open in new tabs option off and back on every morning. I have tried re-installing it but it has not fixed the issue. I am assuming others have raised the same thing with you. Thanks Ed

  • (2020-01-10, v:2.1) Yod Samuel Martín: Extensions do not open on a new window
    Although in theory "Chrome extensions are not blocked", they are indeed in practice since Chrome 79. When I click on the extension button (in particular, Tabs Outliner), the extension window flickers and then it opens on a new tab of the current window.

    Starting with chrome version 79.0.3945.79 the floating google hangouts window won't open. The browser just flashes as if a popup window was blocked. If I disable "Open link in same tab, pop-up as tab" then the Google Hangout window will open. For my users this just started with Chrome 79 on both mac and windows versions of the browser.
  • (2019-12-17, v:2.1) Dave Stout: Blocks Hangouts Extension From Opening
    Now that Google has switched Hangouts to an extension instead of app, I cannot open Hangouts with "Open link in same tab" enabled. If I disable it, then click Hangouts it opens. Please have an ability to white/blacklist Hangouts so it can function properly. Thanks.

  • (2018-09-23, v:2.1) Susan Janeczek: need help with tool
    How do you set this tool up so that when I click on a link in one system, it shows up in the same tab each time? Currently, every time I click on a linkedin URL in a record, it keeps opening a new tab. I thought this tool could be set up so that that linkedin URLs all open in the same tab? Is this possible? Can you help?
