  • (2018-07-28) Cam Young: Get this extension because Google Chrome has an idiot working for them.
  • (2018-04-28) Subham Jha: a must have extention for all users.
  • (2018-04-06) mark day: Doesn't work
  • (2015-10-29) Nikola Toshev: Works great! Can we get double-click the middle button to close the tab? I bet 95%+ of mouse gestures are back and close.
  • (2015-08-19) Donnie Darko: This used to be default in previous Chrome versions, along with opening in a new tab by Middle Clicking on a link but they seem to have deleted this highly useful feature now. The only way to get this back is to use extensions, therefore, increasing the memory usage of Chrome - ridiculous! Thanks for creating this so I can be more productive!
  • (2015-08-13) Benjy Dale: I've used it for years on Firefox, and the same add-on also works a treat here in Chrome :-) This is essential to me, as I used to have an old Logitech mouse that would bind the middle button to 'back' command, but the more recent mice do have that binding.
  • (2013-08-26) Kaan Dogan: I love it. If you use Babylon Dictionary with middle click, you should install it !
  • (2013-08-13) 朱熹: Simple and practical, increase efficiency, increase the operating speed is absolutely excellent work!
  • (2013-07-29) Jose Mtz: Exactly what I needed! Thank you so much for this!
  • (2013-05-27) Ulf Lundholm: Works just fine. Really love this feature because I do not have a good mouse :) * Win7, Comodo Dragon (Version 26.2.2.0)
  • (2012-12-09) Tom Muenze: Works fine on Win7 + Ubuntu 12.10
