extension ExtPose

Force New Tab (delisted)

CRX id


Description from extension meta

Normally a link that you Ctrl-click or middle-click is opened in a new tab. This extension enforces that default behavior.

Description from store Note #1: After installation, you need to refresh your tabs before the extension starts working. Note #2: The extension doesn't work on these special sandboxed pages: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/* chrome://* chrome-extension://* Note #3: The extension doesn't work on every single site, because not everything that looks like a link is actually a link in HTML.

  • (2016-07-27) Olle Ekman: Seems to work as expected. Fixes both ctrl-click and the vimium shortcut for opening a link in a new tab on pages where links were previously forced to open in the current tab.
