Open Chrome bookmark in a new tab

0 0

Web bookmarks are part of our tech life since 1993, sort-of. They usually come in a couple of shapes: they live in a menu, or they live in a bar.

I’m mostly for the bookmark bar arrangement. Something like this:

The usage is simple as a click: you click it, the website opens in the current tab and that’s the main issue for me. I like the bookmark to open in a new tab.

Press and click

If you are the kind of person that is fine with pressing a key and then click, you are good to go. You can press Cmd (or Ctrl) and click on the bookmark: it will open in a new tab.

Only one click

If you are like me, you can’t remember the whole Cmd or Ctrl or whatever thing and, systematically, 9 out of 10 times, you are just gonna

  • click the thing
  • realize it’s opening in the same tab
  • yell at clouds
  • go back
  • press Cmd or Ctrl or whatever it is and click to open the bookmark in a new tab.

Some time ago, I looked for a solution that would allow me to just click the damn thing and have it open in a new tab.

Let’s do this!

Navigate to you website and press Cmd + D to bookmark it.

Click “More” and you will get a dialog like this:

Before saving it, focus on the URL field and wrap the content in

javascript:window.open("WEBSITE_URL");

The example with Google would look like this:

Save and enjoy your single-click-open-in-a-new-tab bookmark 😃
