  • (2021-11-28) Kevin Walker: Sadly, the option to open a specific URL in a new tab doesn't work as expected. If I specify the the source domain that the link is located within it opens the link in a new tab. But if I specify the URL that the link points to, it doesn't work... It used to work, so I am guessing this extension needs updating by the developer.
  • (2021-07-07) James Young: Thank you, working perfect so far. Just switched from the 'New Tabs At End' extension which has become unusable.
  • (2021-03-05) Newtomic: It works, and have some cool extra options, but it breaks the order of some tabs when restoring from a previous saved session in "Tab Session Manager".
  • (2020-12-02) Аяти Ермакова: 素晴らしい拡張機能👏 一生使い続けます🐬
  • (2020-10-10) PeaceBy Jesus: Finally, an extension the enables an option to toggle (Alt+c) btwn more recently activated tabs which should be the default, and is a standard option in Firefox (crtl+tab) rather than cycling thru all the tabs. I find Chrome, Edge, Fire Quantum etc. are still vastly inferior in terms of enhanced functionality as compared with Firefox legacy (ESR 52.9) with is extensions (I prefer a utility truck versus a stripped-down race car), thus enabling multiple tab rows (Quantum can be hacked to provide that), reducing tab width (I usually have dozens open thru sessions) and actual Colorful Tabs, a superior Session saver, etc. etc. I run Firefox ESR as well as Quantum portable, among other browsers. However, as a supplementary browser Chrome (portable) has its place, and this extension helps in that regard. Thank God for options and for those who provide them.
  • (2020-07-10) Gennady Dogaev: I am sorry for 1 star but could you please fix this error: "Error handling response: TypeError: Cannot read property 'msg' of undefined at chrome-extension://fjccjnfkdkdmjohojoggodkigkjkkjhl/contentscript.js:41:11"?
  • (2020-02-20) Huang Stephen: I used to put down the"ctrl" so I can open a new tab. it really helped me.
  • (2020-02-06) Mark K: Brilliant! You my hero! Thank you so much!
  • (2019-12-24) AWAKER: Why Chrome not have this easy option. so pain for go to last tab where original gone every time
  • (2019-11-05) Ling Mao: sometimes it doesn't work.
  • (2019-08-12) Chris H.: One of the few tab managers that work getting new tabs to open right of current tab every time! Thank you!
  • (2019-05-01) Alistair Bahr: Great extension if you want to customize the hell out of your user experience! Using it for years. Barebones, but working GREAT! Thx for the free software :) <3
  • (2019-03-09) Helped me for a while, but had to uninstall because the opt+u keyboard shortcut makes it impossible to type an umlaut on mac. Need to be able to customize keyboard shortcuts to avoid this kind of thing.
  • (2019-02-19) Дмитрий М.: What would I do without it. Indispensable extension! If you want new tabs opened by pressing "+" button on tabbar and Chrome service tabs to open always last, and at the same time "middle-click opened tabs" to open to the right from current tab, do this: 1. Set New tab = "Right of current tab" 2. Add to Matching URLs this one row: chrome://* and set it to "Always last" That will effectively result in grouping interrelated (or opened from the same search result) sites together. In case you want the behavior described above combined with always opening new tab in the foreground (instead of the background), the best option is to use Chromium-based Slimjet browser - it has it built-in, just untick option "Place new tab from an existing tab at the end of all tabs" and tick "Open new tab from an existing tab in foreground by default". It's even better - middle clicked bookmarks open at the end of all tabs as well, which is not achievable by any extensions in other browsers. And while doing all that, it can still open closed tabs in their original position (instead of always opening them next to the currently active tab). The only problem is that if you don't need to "Open new tab from an existing tab in foreground by default", Slimjet acts like Chrome - it doesn't open new tab to the right from current tab.
  • (2019-01-21) Bartosz Malinowski: Finally - good old option that was already available 10 years ago in Opera :)
  • (2018-11-27) twinmegami 2b9s: Usually put tab in wrong place ! I have 7 chrome window with hundred tabs . It usually move a tab in stange position
  • (2018-11-23) boksaboki boksaboki: Works as a charm, fast - no need to restart, thanks
  • (2018-11-21) Bastian Purrer: works great, but unfortunately weird bug that is a killer for me - it somehow deactivates certain shortcuts on mac, e.g. alt+u doesn't enable German umlauts anymore - across all tabs and content, not just the URL bar
  • (2018-10-07) hansel cowo: works with the browser Vivaldi, open new tabs in the Background. Great!
  • (2018-08-22) Antonio Hu: verything is ok, just one thing forget, Middle mouse button, when close with middle button, it will Activate Right of current tab
  • (2018-07-27) Igor Nikitin: This one throws errors to console. No updates since 2015. Should be down rated
  • (2018-05-05) whole product: write
  • (2018-04-21) P Harris: Hijacked my copy and paste for months and I couldn't figure out why it didn't work anymore! Who makes the default settings for any keystroke control C? It shouldn't even let you override a common system keystroke. Boo.
  • (2018-03-23) Stephen S: Could you add that popups opened as a tab follow the same postion as the settings for that? Love this. Thanks.

  • (2017-07-07) Michal Hantl: Life changing
  • (2017-05-31) Shea Bunge: I find the new tab position option absolutely essential; I wish it was a native setting. This extension get pretty close to that - the behavior is very smooth. I also appreciate the ability to have popup windows open in a tab.

  • (2020-06-02, v:5.6) Brendan Hytrek: Order of restored tabs in reveresed.
    Hello, I love this extension except for one problem: When restore a number of tabs in chrome, they are in the reverse order. This gets very annoying when chrome crashes and must be restored forcing you to reorder the 20 tabs you had open. Could you add a feature where this extension doesn't change the order of restored tabs ?

    Hi, thank for your app, is fantastic. I use file:///C:/Instalación/2VIVALDI/Page.htm for my home tab and I want to permit to open links in this tab. I have ticket "External links in new tab" and match the URL to Force open in current tab but don't work. Please help me.
  • (2019-02-19, v:5.6) Дмитрий М.: Bookmarks
    Create a string that represents all bookmarks. If that string is entered in Matching URLs, consider that rule to be applied to any address that matches one of the bookmarks. The point is that I want all links opened from current tab by middle clicking to open to right from the current tab, but all bookmarks "always last".
  • (2019-01-26, v:5.6) Дмитрий М.: Closed tabs
    There is a big problem with opening closed tabs. In case when new tab is set to open "Right of current tab", when user opens closed tab via Chrome's menu, that tab opens always to the right of current tab, not in its original position. I think, solution to this problem is very easy to implement: 1) Make pressing on this extension's button call a function that will open last closed tab. 2) In that function, first, disable override of new tab's position. 3) Then, call chrome.sessions.restore(, function callback) https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/sessions#method-restore with empty first argument 4) In callback, reenable override of new tab's position.
