A shortcut to open a new tab next to the current one
By default, Chrome will only open a new tab at the very end of the row of tabs, which isn’t always what you want. This is a quick shortcut to open a new tab to the right of the one you’re currently viewing. You can either use the button to the right of the address bar, or a configurable keyboard shortcut. The default keyboard shortcut is: • For Windows & Linux: Alt + T • For macOS: Ctrl + T There is also a shortcut to open the new tab in the background instead of switching to it straight away: • For Windows & Linux: Alt + Shift + T • For macOS: Ctrl + Shift + T You can change these shortcuts by going to chrome://extensions/shortcuts The code is open source at https://github.com/gilmoreorless/chrome-new-tab-here
- (2022-05-10) Van Cline: Perfect. Does exactly what I want. Lets you customize the shortcut and does not interfere with other tab opening actions, like using the + button in the top right
- (2021-10-18) Danny Pernik: Yes! Finally a new tab extension that allows the keyboard shortcut to open next to current tab, while allowing the tab to remain in last position when the + button is clicked! Most intuitive option I've found. Thank you!
- (2021-08-22) Forever Indépendant: Love it, works as intended. It's a shame that it isn't a built-in feature on Chrome.
- (2021-08-18) Alberto Calvo: Just perfect. Ctrl+T opens a new tab at the end. Alt+T opens a new tab to the right. I need both, this improves my productivity a lot. It works well with the flag: #scrollable-tabstrip (other similar extension did weird things with tab focus)

- (2021-07-22) glassy jam: It works like a charm. The only thing that I would wanted to see is the ability to change the backgroud color of the newly opened tab to black or, probably, some other colors.

- (2021-04-18) SkillUp Gaming: Excellent extension – works exactly as intended. For anyone wondering how to change the shortcut for opening new tabs, change the Chrome setting at "chrome://extensions/shortcuts." I changed mine to command + Y and command + shift + Y.

- (2021-03-15) Peter Bacon: Works great!. Pairs well with Tab Position Customizer 2. But why are there 2 shortcut keys you can map? They both seem to do the same exact thing.
- (2021-01-04) Awerkamp Family: Excellent! I use this one on a daily basis.
- (2018-05-20) Or Schiro: Brilliant! Finally I can open a new child next to current with a customised shortcut Alt + t. :-)
- (2017-04-29) Charnjit Singh: It just works great! Finally a nice working implementation! Plus it's Open-Source! Thank you! (Tested on Linux) O_O
