  • (2019-01-01) Al Howarth: This WAS a great extension. It is no longer working. As the last update was nearly 5 years ago, I assume it's abandonware.
  • (2018-10-28) Cavin Leske: Per my rating, I "loved it". Unfortunately, I no longer love it. It seems to be interfering with Hulu and Amazon Video services. When I could no longer watch videos in either of those services without switching to FireFox, I eventually disabled this extension and my problems were solved. I hate to remove this extension as it makes opening links in new tabs so much faster, but sadly I must. Honestly this should be Chrome's default behavior, or at least there should be an option for it. Perhaps I should just switch back to FireFox, which is once again a decent alternative.
  • (2018-08-23) Tim Desmond: I was going crazy trying to figure out why middle click was not working. I thought it was the mouse or Windows 10.
  • (2018-08-02) M Patel: does not work
  • (2018-02-02) Kristoffer Blasiak: Very simple, absolutely no setup needed to disable the "close tab with middle click" functionality.
  • (2017-11-28) rocketman5004 _: I always had it on, but unfortunately, it doesn't work anymore. Could you update it for the newest version of Chrome please?
  • (2016-10-14) Sören Beye: Endlich eine Lösung für diesen Unsinn. Quellcode der Extension ist auch sauber und ohnehin nur eine einzige Zeile lang. Genau so muss das.
  • (2016-09-26) Dominic Rose: corrige un bug avec ma souris Logitech qui ne pouvait pas ouvrir de liens dans nouvel onglet si en mode "Détection de Jeu atomatique" fix a bug on my Logitech mouse that couldn't open links in a new tab in "Automatic Game Detection" mode
  • (2016-09-14) wutgoddamit: works
  • (2016-07-13) vasili111: Just does what I want from it. Middle click always opens link in new tab.
  • (2016-07-13) Does exactly what it says it does. Nothing more, nothing less.
  • (2016-05-25) Apathy Agony: Now I can go to bed and sleep
  • (2016-04-27) Wayne Farmer: As per the last two reviews, it doesn't work on my system. I'm running Google Chrome Version 50.0.2661.87 m (64-bit) under Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.
  • (2016-04-16) Cypriot Geeza: After reading all the "This really works!" Reviews I decided to add this app and you guessed it.. IT DIDN'T WORK! Annoying as I was really hoping it would fix this annoying problem!
  • (2016-03-31) Erica Hope: Didn't work at all.
  • (2016-03-13) [para]dox: OMG! I always thought middle click opening images\links in the same window instead of opening in new tab is unfixable! HUGE THANKS!
  • (2016-03-08) Shan Muga: This extension is a bliss. Many websites annoy me with their crapy scipts which do not allow middle click to open new tab.I middle click like a lottt. Now its easy peasy..
  • (2016-01-01) Acecool: Didn't fix the bug with Chrome in the Chrome Store ( using middle click by holding it down to scroll and releasing breaks the page [ shows the scrolling down or up icon ] and prevents click events from ever being used on that tab again until you close the tab and re-open [ if you switch to a different site, it works fine, but you can't use that tab with the webstore anymore )
  • (2015-11-29) Casper Skov Mathisen: Should be a standard feature of the browser...
  • (2015-11-22) Thomas Fancy: This did exactly what I hoped it would. 1 click fix. Free scrolling works with centre click again, and links open in a new tab.
  • (2015-10-29) Heather Love: This didn't work in Chrome now, even after restarting.
  • (2015-08-02) Marvin R.: Gute Erweiterung für Webseiten die meinten sie müssten die Mittelclick-Funktionalität verändern/beschneiden.
  • (2015-07-06) Alex Kibbe: hell yes thank you
  • (2015-06-03) Razvan Paraschiv: It does not work for me, I still click middle mouse and tabs won't close or links won't open in new tab unless I really insist on clicking it...
  • (2015-06-01) Solipso: Does exactly what it says. Should be a standard feature.
