I know Firefox has an option to switch to new tabs immediately, which I used. However I recently switched to Google Chrome, and can't find any option. There doesn't seem to be any sort of about:config equivalent that would offer any options either. Any ideas?

I think this is the extension your looking for, as it's not a part of Chromes standard options.

Since your checking out Chrome, here are some more of my favorites, do you have some you like?

This is like FF Read it Later See my post there to make it easier to install (Aug. 20th post)

AdThwart add blocker

Turn Off The Lights, a fun little extension.

IE Tab for going into IE browser "mode"

LastPass for Chrome.

I installed all of those except LastPass (no need for a password manager). Thanks!

Your welcome :) Hopefully that Switch To Tab Immediately link was at least close to what you were looking for.

Yeah that does exactly what I want - I'm just not sure why Chrome can't do it in the first place...

I'm not sure, but I think that's why it's so incredibly fast, in that it doesn't come with allot of internal add-ons/extensions to slow it down.

I do have Chrome, and I will probably take this tip. But I still do not like Chrome. It feels like a toy.
