Make sure to use Chrome version 84+ with this extension, otherwise the automatic selection of the locationbar text doesn't work. Since Google updated Chrome to version 29, the App overview is no longer shown, when opening a new tab. This extension restores that behaviour to the way it was. Tip: the keyboard shortcut CTRL+L (Windows/Linux) or CMD+L (OSX) highlights the URL. v.2.1.0 This is the same as v.1.1.0, back by popular demand v.2.0.0 Removed for now v.1.1.0 Now automagically selects the URL, as many of you have requested.

I am a HUGE fan of this app. I absolutely love seeing all my apps in one place when I open a new tab. Thank you!
For a long time this was the best solution to chrome removing the apps tab, but for the last 6 months or so I have noticed I can no longer arrange the app icons the way I want. They seem to go where they want to go, and any time I open that page on a new computer they duplicate the same behavior even on a fresh system and browser reinstall. Will be looking for a new alternative if this can't be fixed soon.

Love this extension. But I get some weird thing when using an extended monitor with my laptop: when a Chrome window is open on my laptop screen all works normally. But when I drag a Chrome window over to my extended monitor and click on an app icon, the link opens in another window (as if I had selected 'open link in new window', but I didn't). Any way to fix this? Just a bit annoying to have to always be dragging new Chrome windows back into groups.
