Using Chrome, we can open links in new tabs either via CtrlClick or Right-clickOpen link in new tab:
The new tab is not guaranteed to open to the immediate right-hand side of the parent tab. For those interested in the odd algorithm Chrome uses, :
By default, Chrome will open the new tab at the immediate right-hand side of the rightmost tab among the chained (i.e. connected side-by-side without ever being unconnected) unclosed tabs that had been opened by the current tab which has never been moved to another window. (It's an art trying to figure out exactly where the new tab will open to, especially when tabs are often dragged around. /s)
Contrast that with the behavior of Highlight textRight-clickSearch Google for '
x' which will always open the new tab at the immediate right-hand side of the parent tab.
Is there a Chrome addon to change the behavior of 'Open link in new tab' such that it will always open the new tab to the immediate right-hand side of the parent tab? (To be clear, the only thing that changes is the position of the new tab. Everything else remains the same.)
Currently I'm manually dragging those off-positioned new tabs, wasting quite a couple of precious hours (over the years). Another equally time-consuming way is to drag the tab to the left then to the right (or vice-versa) before clicking on the new link.
