Concerns Regarding Required Permissions Please read the detailed description of required permissions (below) and why they are necessary. Without them, Tab Activate could not work as described. Absolutely no data is changed or collected. ---------------------------------------- Description When you open a link in a new tab, Chrome opens the new tab in the background and provides no option to switch to it immediately. With Tab Activate, new tabs open immediately instead of in the background. To override Tab Activate and open a new tab in the background, press the Shift key while opening the new tab. Note: Override does not work for bookmarks. Tab Activate effectively reverses Chrome's new tab focus behavior.
Tab Activate requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Tab Activate if you trust the publisher.
