Are you frustrated with Chrome always opening “right click selected” new tabs in the background instead of focused? If so, then you will definitely want to have a look at the Tabs To The Front! extension.


The standard behavior in Chrome has any new tab that you open from from the “Right Click Menu” always appear in the background. Once in a while might not be much of a problem but if you open lots of tabs this way every day it can get very tiring using your mouse to bring all those tabs to the front.

If you are tired of having to use your mouse to focus new tabs all day long, then this little extension is going to make browsing a much more pleasant experience for you.
