Description from store This extension adds a context menu that allows you to open a link in a new foreground tab. FOLLOW ME ON +: https://plus.google.com/116805285176805120365/about SOURCE CODE: http://goo.gl/Seob (GitHub) As a feature bonus, when you close a foreground tab, instead of picking a random tab to close, it closes the tab that opened the foreground. This imitates the same functionality of 'Open new tab'.

  • (2019-11-05) Chris Vydas: The whole point was to get a context menu entry with the addition of this extension, yet, no context menu entry has been added! It is not there. Menu remains unchanged.

    Still won't successfully install in Chrome 67. Has this extension been abandoned? Are any alternatives available?
  • (2018-06-04, v:1.0.2) Rich Wales: Doesn't work in Google Chrome 67
    The "Open link in foreground tab" extension works fine in Chrome 66.0.3359.181 -- but it appears to be completely gone in Chrome 67.0.3396.62. Can this extension be reinstated for Chrome 67? Or is there some reason why it won't work anymore?
