A shortcut to open a new tab next to the current one

By default, Chrome will only open a new tab at the very end of the row of tabs, which isn’t always what you want. This is a quick shortcut to open a new tab to the right of the one you’re currently viewing. You can either use the button to the right of the address bar, or a configurable keyboard shortcut.
