TabLink - Chrome Web Store


Open a link in a new tab, not in the same

With TabLink if you click a link, it's always opened in a new tab! So you don't have to use middle-click! This is very useful if you have a mouse without middle-button ATTENTION It doesn't work in new tab, history, downloads, extensions pages Please rate this extension if you like it ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Icon from
