Open Link In Foreground Tab (delisted)

Description from extension meta

Opens links in a new foreground tab instead of in the background.

Image from store Open Link In Foreground Tab
Description from store This extension activates newly opened tabs instead of opening them in the background. The default behavior in Chrome when clicking on a link with the "_blank" target, or by CTRL/CMD clicking on a link, is to open the tab in the background. Most browsers allow changing this behavior in the Preferences menu; for Chrome, disable this extension to have new tabs open in the background, enable it to open new tabs in the foreground. Updated to work with "modern" versions of Chrome.
