With OS X, opening a link to a new tab opens in the background (existing tab stays in foreground). How can I force new tabs in the foreground?

    Do you have the "Chrome Toolbox"-extension installed? This is a setting in its options. – Rik Sep 12 '13 at 20:06

Try This Extension. It is what I use myself on both Windows and Linux so it should work on OS X too.

  • "Tabs to the front" is exactly what I needed. Works perfectly. – Clark Sep 12 '13 at 23:22

Command + Shift + Left-Click on the link to open it in the fore ground. This is a work around so go with Rik's suggestion.

  • Or in OS X you can hold command and shift instead of control and shift. – Lri Sep 12 '13 at 20:50
