    I set up Chrome for the first time just minutes ago and already I find one thing I need to change and cannot find how.

    In Firefox, I can right-click a page link and select "open in new tab"; but, I cannot find how to make Chrome immediately switch to the new tab.

    How is this done?

    Thanks for the interest; but, I'm using Chrome 4.1.249.1064 and nothing on that page seems to apply. None of the items written about on that page that are supposed to be on the right-click menu, are there.

    You have to install the extension.

    Yes, I realized that at some point after I posted last. Thanks.

    Wow, if Chrome hasn't even put this feature in and one has to go look for extension just for that, it just lost my interest.

    Thanks for the replies.
