Open Tabs Next to Current
Item media 1 screenshot


Open new tabs to the right of the current one.

Open Tabs Next To Current ========================= Open tabs that would normally be opened last next to the current one. Tabs that are being re-opened are thus not included. You can use `Ctrl-Y` (`Ctrl-Shift-Y` on Windows) to open a new tab at the default location. Note for Chrome --------------- Keyboard shortcuts are not automatically set up. You need to do that manually on the extension page in settings. Note for Firefox ---------------- Tabs that are opened by clicking on links are opened at the default location. You can change the setting `browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent` in `about:config` if you want even those to be opened right next to the current. Known Issues ------------ Caused by limitations of the webextension API, see and - tabs are visibly moved to their final position - the tab bar is scrolled so the opened tab becomes the first visible one on the left (Firefox only) - when opening multiple tabs at once, only one of them is opened at the right position Feedback -------- You can report bugs or make feature requests on Patches are welcome.

Wow, I really wish I could have found or had this extension in my browser years ago. I had no idea that this was even possible to do in an extension. When I started searching the web for open source forked versions of Chromium that would open up new tabs after the current one, this extension came up as the first result, thankfully. Edit: Actually, I only wanted an extension like this to work on new, blank tabs. I like how when I middle-click on links, it starts adjacent to the current, but i... Show more
