*** Concerns Regarding Required Permissions ***
Please read the detailed description (below) of required permissions and why they are necessary. Without them, Tab Activate could not work as described. Absolutely no data is changed or collected.


When you open a link in a new tab, Chrome opens the new tab in the background and provides no option to switch to it immediately.

With Tab Activate, new tabs open immediately instead of in the background.

To override Tab Activate and open a new tab in the background, press the Shift key while opening the new tab. Note: Override does not work for bookmarks.

Tab Activate effectively reverses Chrome's new tab focus behavior.

In other browsers this setting is called "When you open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately."


Required Permissions

Read and change your bookmarks:
Required to activate bookmarked tabs (bookmarks are only read, not changed)

Read and change all your data on the websites you visit:
Required to detect when the Shift key is pressed (no other website data is accessed)

Due to limitations in the Chrome extension API, the only way to detect if the Shift key is being pressed or if a new tab's URL is bookmarked is with the required permissions. Absolutely no data is changed or collected.
