Opening a new tab in Google Chrome normally selects the text in the address bar; as of recently it has been placing the cursor after the last character and not overwriting over when I begin to type. Any ideas what may have changed?

@Nemo: It isn't clear how you think that relates to what was asked. – fixer1234 May 3 '15 at 20:33
@fixer1234, the asker wants to open a new tab and be able to immediately type the search query or URL; provides a solution which does exactly that – Nemo May 3 '15 at 20:38

I'm not sure exactly what you experienced with your Chrome but for me, opening a new Tab or Window results with a blank address bar and its in focus so I can type from it right away.

Until recently that was the same behavior I was having - only now it opens a new tab to the Google homepage and the cursor at the end of the and my HomePage is set to the "New Tab page" – amadib Apr 12 '11 at 4:35
