  • (2021-07-03) Yaozu Li: Thank you for developing this extension on chrome. I recently swtiched from Firefox to Chrome since my firefox was bugging, and I realized that chrome does not have the convient way of "ctrl+left click on + sign" to open a new tab next to my current tab. Now I found this extension on StackExchange and it does the job! Hopefully the extension is secured and you won't rob my information haha, but other than that thank you.
  • (2020-02-11) Tim Hi: stopped working
  • (2019-12-19) Jason Merrill: I've appreciated this extension, but it stopped working recently.
  • (2018-10-12) Tony Snark: I liked that it was lighter on memory than "Tab to the Next" (the extension it is inspired by), but it doesn't make tabs opened from bookmarks open to the right like Tab to the Next did. Would be nice to have that option. I like the consistency of all my new tabs always opening to the right of the current one. If anyone else is in the same situation as me, there is another extension called "Tab Position Options" that does this. It's also got a lot of other options you can tinker with if you want more granular control. It's only a tad higher on memory usage than this extension.
  • (2018-09-20) Tim Cheng: I want to use this but it says the extension can read your browser history, why would it need to do that?!
  • (2016-12-30) Dimitar Pankov: Works perfectly and does exactly what it's designed to do. I've been looking so long for such solution and none of the alternatives like TabsPlus and Tabs Position Options could do it. Thanks!
  • (2016-05-20) Jonathan March: Interferes with shift+click in a range of more useful / important contexts (such as extending a selection). So not worth it.
  • (2016-04-24) Dwayne Kuan: No longer works
  • (2015-10-26) Will Lucic: Thank you! I've been trying to get this functionality for a while now and this does exactly what I want.

  • (2023-02-08, v:2.1) Gang Zhai: It doesn't work in Edge.
    2.1 works well in Chrome, but fails in Edge. Any suggestion? Edge keeps the compatibility for all other extensions.
  • (2021-10-18, v:2.1) Danny Pernik: Different behavior for keyboard shortcut vs + button
    Hi, thank you for this extension! I love the behavior when I use the keyboard shortcut to add a new tab, but when I press the + button to add a tab, I expect it to create a new tab last (next to the +). This is most intuitive to me, and I can't find an extension that enables it. Thank you for your consideration!

  • (2019-12-26, v:2.0) Clayton Atchison: Not working
    Hi, the app stopped working a couple of weeks ago. I LOVE this extension. Life isn't the same without it. :( Please fix when you have the time.
  • (2019-12-23, v:2.0) Steve Leahy: Stopped working after Chrome Update
    On Chrome Version 79.0.3945.88. This app worked prior to the last update, but not a CRTL+T puts the tab at the very end of the browser tab list instead of to the right. The right-click context menu button still works correctly.
  • (2019-12-12, v:2.0) Elisei Kulikovsky: Stopped working
    Ctrl+T tabs open at the very end. 79.0.3945.79

  • (2016-02-02, v:1.0) does not work any more
    I did not changed anything major in chrome extensions, child tab next is still enabled, but not functioning. All I can mention that yesterday I allowed a system security patch to be deployed to my mac: Security update 2016-001, Version 10.10.5
