New Tabs at End Opens New Tabs at the End of the Chrome Tab Bar

Chrome: If you’d prefer to have new tabs open at the end of the row instead of next to their parent tab, New Tabs at End is a simple Google Chrome extension that will scoot your tabs where you want them.

It’s a minor thing, to be sure, but many users prefer to have tabs open at the end of the row–I know it took me quite awhile as a new Chrome user to get used to the default next-to-parent action. If you’d prefer to have the new tabs open at the end, hit up the link below to install New Tabs at End to tweak your tab bar workflow.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Wouldn’t it make more sense just to hit Ctrl+T? Seems like it’s a lot of inconvenience just to avoid hitting two keys.

    What’s the up arrow icon next to the Wrench icon?

    Err… Firefox 11 also opens the new tab next-to-parent?

    I’d rather have the opposite behavior, where the new tab opens next to my current one instead of at the end of the row when I hit Ctrl+T. If I’m opening a new tab, it probably has something to do with the tab I’m currently on, so I want them grouped together.

    Still think Opera’s ‘Group’ your tabs is so very convenient. but then again, If I were designing a browser from scratch,,,, Actually sometimes i like the tabs next to the one i’m reading, other times no, but mostly unless i’m on a research project, it really doesn’t matter.

    Move tabs with simply drag and drop

    “Err… Firefox 11 also opens the new tab next-to-parent?”

    A behaviour you can easily change without having to install a freaking add-on.

    How can I get Chrome to actually take me to the new tab automatically when I click “Open link in new tab”? IE and Firefox have this option….
