Randomly selects a tab

User reviews
It seems some concession needs to be made with any/all of the extensions of this kind, i.e., those that open a random tab from the tabs you currently have open. Of the 3 that I tried, however, this one worked the best. If you're like me and open hundreds of tabs per window, this is far and away the best option performance-wise, as it executes almost immediately whereas the others take 10-15 seconds or more depending on the amount of tabs you have open. The one and only drawback this one has that's keeping me from rating it 5 stars is that the default action is to open the new tab in any one of the available open windows at random. I like that it's pulling from all open windows but would prefer if it opened the tab in the window in which I clicked the extension icon. If the trade-off is that it would only be pulling from the tabs open in that window, then so be it. Still, comparably speaking, this is a strong effort and if it's still maintained and that one thing fixed, by far the best of the bunch (if you don't open 100's of tabs, I could see one of the others being the better fit until then but for that reason only). In truth, it's my favorite of the bunch in spite of this drawback bur it would be made that much more awesome if that one nitpick could be addressed. Hook it up, dev. Please n thanks? :-) PS - I was digging the "interesting snippets" section of your website. Interesting snippets, indeed.
