Description from store This allows you to open a new tab from within any application with a keyboard shortcut. This means that as soon as you think of a search to do or web page to open, you are just one keypress away from doing it. !!! You MUST select a keyboard shortcut after installing !!! To use, install the extension and then click on "Keyboard Shortcuts" at the bottom of the extensions page. There, select a shortcut key for "Global New Tab Shortcut" and be sure to change the dropdown to "Global". This extension doesn't add handlers to pages or anything fishy. It uses the built-in Chrome keyboard shortcut handling to create a new tab with the built-in Chrome APIs. Source is at https://github.com/wmertens/global-chrome-tab
Latest reviews (2016-08-16) Mark Fulton: Thank you! Now that Google has retired the Chrome app launcher this is the next best thing that I've found so far for quickly launcher web searches. http://blog.chromium.org/2016/03/retiring-chrome-app-launcher.html
Latest issues (2016-10-11, v:1.2) Matthew Shapiro: "global' is unavailable
The dropdown to set 'global' is greyed-out and set to 'Chrome' for the 3 keyboard shortcut options for Global New Tab Shortcut. Other extensions have the drop-down enabled and I can toggle between 'Global' and 'Chrome'. What am I doing wrong?
