  • (2023-09-15) Leland Whitlock: Wow! This does exactly what I wanted. I have been looking for a replacement for SimpleTabOrder for about a year and this is it. Great work! I only wish I had found it sooner.
  • (2023-08-31) Perfect!
  • (2023-06-15) Logar: Does what it says. One thing I'd love is if developers could bypass Chrome's native behavior that make extensions like this semi-working (like focusing at the end of the tabs, while the new tab has opened right next to the current one, or videos starting playing next to the tab I just closed, despite the focus being on the last used tab).
  • (2023-01-03) Ronald Harvey: Does not do what I wanted/expected it to do. I want an extension that actually does what I - ME ME ME, not Google and not other developers - want my tabs to do! 1) open new tabs/links/ to the right of the existing tab; 2) open links from other applications to a new far right tab; 3) use "+" to open new tab to the far right; 4) close tab returns to the last opened tab.
  • (2022-12-20) Андрей: Everything would be fine if the extension did not shuffle the tab order after launch.
  • (2022-11-04) 케일: Thank You!
  • (2022-04-17) Rogerio M. Souza: The best! Working fine!
  • (2022-02-12) Sherrys: 是否可以加几个功能。 1. 多一些选项打开新标签的时候自动激活新标签。(如果选择了后台打开其他标签的情况下) 2. 从收藏夹打开的链接可以自动生成新的标签,而不是当前标签。
  • (2022-01-26) Hoang-Phuc Tran: Wonderful after the latest Edge v97 updated, my Tabplus extension stop working and this is the only alternative that I could find on the web store that functioning as the same. Thank you for your creation, keep it up! 👍👍👍
  • (2021-11-07) Craig: Suberb. For me, it has replaced two extensions that didnt work properly anyway.
  • (2021-10-10) Akira Yang: Very buggy. Immediately after opening or closing a tab, it frequently snaps back to the 1st tab instead of the one it should.
  • (2021-09-17) Hock-Soon LEE: Now I know where to look for my new tab without other tabs confusing me.
  • (2021-09-09) kiampp: It was working just as promised. But today (after the new update I guess) it keeps failing like 1 in 10 times when I open a tab. it sometimes forgets to open the tab on the end which is my setting. Very annoying so hopefully it will be fixed again.
  • (2021-08-27) 纪舒: In a few cases, the tab position are still confusing。
  • (2021-08-26) 左之場備鎚: Not working Simple TabOrder is goog. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/simpletaborder/cekafjbmkfofacenifehbglhmajimhjf
  • (2021-08-08) Arpad Orfi: This ONE extension actually WORKS - the 8-10 other with the same functionality do not. The developer keeps changing the code if something gets broken. Thanks for this superb extension!
  • (2021-08-07) first name last name: As other users 'open tab right' is a hit and miss, new tab tends to open right of the last opened tab instead of the originating tab. Similar happens to 'left tab after closing', focus sometimes jumps to first tab instead of the one immediately left. I find that using 'Simple Tab Order' at the same irons the hitches most of time; STO has similar issues when I use it on its own.
  • (2021-08-07) John Rhee: Works perfectly, thank you! One question: What is "Activate Tab After Tab Closing" option of "Order"?
  • (2021-07-09) Tanner Amsler: "Right of current tab" is not working as expected in Version 91.0.4472.124 (Official Build) (64-bit) Hi Team, Regarding "Right of current tab", at first, it funtions well, but half of hour later(or some what time later), it disfunctions(mess here and there, can't specifically tell the appeared logic), i've tried similar ones(e.g: Tab-Position-Customizer-2), also got the exact/98% similar issue. it looks like it's google chrome side issue, not sure if you can fix it or not. hope it can be fixed. thanks.
  • (2021-05-13) 我的祖国我和: 垃圾谷歌,设计这反人类关闭标签后右边标签的逻辑. 明明新弹窗在右边,关闭后却显示右边以前的标签. 是公司太臃肿导致的! garbage rubbish google, design this anti human close tag jump right side tag logic. brightly new link tag at right side,close it then but active right older tag. it is company too fatty to bloated it!
  • (2021-04-07) lfdiskcn: 不习惯关闭标签后激活右侧标签页。 这个扩展很好用,谢谢!
  • (2020-10-26) sunrise cai: Good plugin!TKS!
  • (2020-03-23) Jun: 这个插件很好用,但有一点希望能改进一下。回到最后激活的标签页,这个选项,如果最后激活的标签页与当前要关闭的标签页中间存在其他的标签,在关闭当前标签回到最后激活的标签页时会闪一下,比如最后激活的标签页在当前要关闭的标签页左边几个位置,关闭当前页时,会先跳到当前标签的左边那个标签,然后再跳到最后激活的标签页,这样就会看到浏览器闪一下,希望能够解决这个问题。
  • (2020-03-17) 黄潇雷: 相当好用,解决了之前v2从当前标签页打开新标签时会跳转到前台的问题,还细化了定制选项
  • (2020-03-15) Cionfo Sbernecchia: great! I was using "tab position options" too, and this one is definitely better.
  • (2020-02-10) Christian Carlén: Highly recommended. This one easily replaced the previous version of 'tab position options' that stopped working in 2019. 5 stars, 10 gold bars, 100 diamonds.

  • (2023-10-31, v:1.4.1) Ron Mideiros: Keyboard Shortcut for Last Tab Feature
    Great Extension. The ability to add a keyboard shortcut for the 'Last Tab' feature would put it over the top. Thanks for all your work!
  • (2022-08-28, v:1.4.1) Zak: [Feature Request] Additional Tab Opening Position Logic - "Next Right"
    This new logic would function very similar to one of the current logics, "Right of current tab". Instead of new tabs opening to the right of the current tab, they would open to the right of the most previously opened tab. Then the logic would reset when a new tab is changed to or launched in the foreground. Example 1: You're on a Google search result page (Tab 1) and you open three links in background tabs (Tabs 2, 3, and 4; by order of opening). The orders of the tabs according to each logic would be: "Right of current tab" - Tab 1, Tab 4, Tab 3, Tab 2 "Next right tab" - Tab 1, Tab 2, Tab 3, Tab 4 Example 2: Same as Example 1, but you then click on Tab 3 and open three more links in background tabs (Tabs 5, 6, and 7; by order of opening). The orders of the tabs according to each logic would be: "Right of current tab" - Tab 1, Tab 4, Tab 3, Tab 7, Tab 6, Tab 5, Tab 2 "Next right tab" - Tab 1, Tab 2, Tab 3, Tab 5, Tab 6, Tab 7, Tab 4 I hope this makes sense, please let me know if it doesn't. Do you think that this is something you could add? Thank you very much for your work on this extension, it is very much appreciated!
  • (2022-06-24, v:1.4.1) Paul Van Cotthem: Feature request: open links to new domain in new tab
    Feature request: could you add an option to automatically open links which lead to a new domain in a new tab? Note: I currently use a separate extension for this ("New Domain in New Tab), but it would be very useful if such functionality would be included in your extension as well. Thanks.
  • (2022-05-02, v:1.4.1) ちゃっぷ63: Open Link in New Tab
    Please Add Function "Open Link in New Tab (Forground)".
  • (2022-03-17, v:1.4.1) Arpad Orfi: Bug caused by manually moving tabs in certain cases - when opening new tabs or closing tabs
    Dear Kristoffer, There is still a bug when opening new tabs, and how the extension positions those newly opened tabs. This bug is several months old – I report it now because it only occurs in special cases. My settings: “Tab Opening Position: Right of current tab” “Activate Tab After Tab Closing: Left” How to reproduce the bug (after you choose the settings above): 1) CTRL+N – open a new window and load some webpage 2) CTRL+T – open another tab and load some webpage 3) CTRL+T – open yet another tab and load some webpage 4) Move this last tab from the last (i.e. 3rd) place to the 2nd place. 5) On this moved, i.e. now 2nd tab, CTRL+click on a link to open a page in a new tab. 6) BUG: as per my settings, newly opened tabs should open right to the current tab, but instead, they open right of the 3rd tab. Previously you have managed to solve a similar bug (i.e. moving tabs manually causes breakdown of the logic of tab opening position), but maybe this is a special case that still needs to be addressed. The above sequence of actions similarly breaks down the logic of “Activate Tab After Tab Closing”, i.e. at step 5 when you close the active tab (the 2nd tab), instead of the left tab the right tab gets activated. Thank you for trying to fix this.
  • (2022-02-12, v:1.4.1) Sherrys: 希望加几个功能就比较完美了。
    是否可以加几个功能。 1. 多一些选项打开新标签的时候自动激活新标签。(如果选择了后台打开其他标签的情况下) 2. 从收藏夹打开的链接可以自动生成新的标签,而不是当前标签。
  • (2021-11-18, v:1.4.1) Zak: New Tab Position
    Settings: Tab Opening Position - right, Activate Tab After Tab Closing - order After the recent round of updates, new tab seems to mostly be opening at the last position, not right of current tab. If I click around to adjacent tabs, then back to the tab I was on, then open new tab, it will mostly open right of current tab. Just fyi. Thanks for the extension, I love that you update it frequently. Speaking of, is there any chance at all that you can include, even a very brief, changelog? Would be happy with here, github, or anywhere really.
  • (2021-10-22, v:1.3.8) Caspian Roach: "Last Tab" menu item in the right click menu on document body.
    Could you please add an option to hide the "Last Tab" menu item from the right click menu in the document? I personally don't see a use for it so I would like to remove it for myself.
  • (2021-08-31, v:1.3.6) Zak: Activating wrong tab after tab closure
    This is related to the previous issue that I described (I get similar issues when the extension is turned on then browser restarted fresh, though I hadn't been able to pin-point until now), but I have been able to simplify the issue for you to evaluate: - You can start with a new window and for "tab 1" go to any website (with links), let's say reddit.com - Open "tab 2" and go to anywhere, let's say google.com - Click on "tab 1", then right-click to open any link in a new tab. This "tab A" will open between "tab 1" and "tab 2". - Click on "tab A", then right-click to open any link in a new tab. This "tab B" will open between "tab A" and "tab 2". - Click on "tab B" (At this point, if you close "tab A" and "tab B" then you will be brought to "tab 1". Expected behavior. But...) - Type any URL (try yahoo.com) in "tab B" and hit enter - Close "tab B" and "tab A", then "tab 2" will be activated instead of "tab 1". Only options I have enabled are: new tab opens right of current tab, and tab activated after closing current tab is the previously used tab.
  • (2021-08-19, v:1.3.5) Arpad Orfi: Closing NOT the active tab at the right erroneously switches to another tab
    Hello Kristoffer, To start off, I think that the “Activate Tab After Tab Closing” setting should pertain only in case the user closes the ACTIVE (i.e. current) tab – not in any other case. I’ve encountered another strange issue: when I close a tab OTHER then I am on at that moment, then the extension switches to another tab. My setting are, as always: open to the RIGHT, after close activate LEFT. So, I click the x button to close ANY OTHER TAB TO THE RIGHT of the active tab that I’m currently on, and instead of the expected behavior of NOT changing the active tab that I am on, the extension jumps to the tab left to the current one. If, however, I close any OTHER tab to the left, then the current active tab does not changes, as expected.
  • (2021-08-12, v:1.3.5) Zak: Activating wrong tab after tab closure
    Similar to another user, the wrong tab is being activated when the current tab is closed. I am on version 1.3.5. I had 20 tabs open, then opened 6 new tabs to test the extension. I mixed them in between the other 20 tabs, something like this: tab 26 -> 5, tab 25 -> 10, tab 24 -> 15, tab 23 -> 6, tab 22 -> 11, tab 21 -> 16. Then I closed tab 16 and it switched to tab 11, but when I closed tab 11 it switched to tab 12 instead of 6. Closing tab 12 switched to tab 13, and it just kept moving to the right. This sounds like a similar issue that Arpad had three days ago. I'm hoping to switch over from TabsPlus, as that extension functions great but every once in a while I have to disable then re-enable it because it stops working (it must get kicked out of memory when I have too many tabs open, switch windows, etc). It looks like your project should have the functions I need (new tab opens right of current tab and tab activated after closing current tab is the previously used tab) and is currently maintained, so I'd like to use it. Thanks
  • (2021-08-11, v:1.3.5) Advanced Hearing: pop-ups
    What happened to the option to force pop-up windows to open as a new tab rather than as a new window? This is the whole reason I have this extension. In tab position customizer - 2, this option still works but every time I restart Chrome, it disables the extension because it says it violates Chrome Web Store policy.
  • (2021-08-07, v:1.3.4) Arpad Orfi: New bug introduced by eliminating the former bug. Activating order still does not work perfectly.
    Hello Kristoffer, I've tested the current version. Activating after closing is now OK even when the tab was moved. But the logic of opening new tab is now broken. I've set to open new tabs to the "right of current tab" - this does not work with this new release. Only the FIRST TWO new tabs open next to the current tab at the right; all subsequent tabs are NOT opened next to the current tab. Instead, they open next to the SECOND newly opened tab.
  • (2021-07-31, v:1.3.3) Arpad Orfi: Activating wrong tab if the closed tab was moved beforehand
    After closing a tab, not always the correct tab is activated. If I move a tab to another position, this seems to make the extension not working correctly. Most of the time the extension works but changing the order of tabs manually breaks the logic. If, after manually relocating the tab, I press CTRL+PgUp or CTRL+PgDn (to switch to another tab then back), then Tab Position Customizer works correctly. Though obviously this is just a workaround but inconvenient. If you move a tab manually, then the extension doesn't work at all, at least if it is set to open new tabs to the right and activate tab to the left when closing. Opening a new tab opens at the original position from where you have moved your tab, and closing the tab activates the tab that WAS left BEFORE you have moved your tab manually. Maybe to code could be modified to execute an invisibly quick CTRL+PgUp, CTRL+PgDn keypress sequence to change the position of the tab back and forth, ensuring that the extension is well aware of the position of the active tab in relation to other tabs even in case the tab was moved manually.
  • (2021-05-30, v:1.3.2) Mike: no longer works
    after chrome update to 91, this extension doesn't work correctly...specially when i set it to open new tabs "to the right"....it seems there is some misunderstanding of currently active tab...please fix this superuseful extension...tnx 🍀
