I'm looking for a way to open a given page in Google Chrome from the command line, with the following behaviour:
- If the given page is already open in a tab, navigate to that tab
- If the given page is not already open in a tab, open the page in a new tab and show that tab
Currently when I open a URL from the command line (e.g. using "open http://godzillahaiku.tumblr.com" on Mac OS X), Chrome will always open the URL in a new tab. I end up with lots of duplicate tabs as a result, which is a minor annoyance.
I'm looking for a solution that works on Mac OS X, but a non-OS specific solution would be preferable.
I'd consider writing a Chrome extension for this if there's no existing solution.
