You can make a background tab active in Google Chrome automatically. It will be opened immediately instead of in the background. Here is how you can do it.
By default, when you middle-click a link in Google Chrome, or when you left click a link while holding the Ctrl key, it gets opened in a new tab in the background. You can override this behavior and open the link in a foreground tab which Chrome immediately switches to as you open it. Here is how it can be done.
To make a background tab active in Google Chrome automatically, you need to do the following.
Press and hold Ctrl + Shift keys together on the keyboard, and only then click the link that you want to switch to immediately. It will be opened in a new foreground tab.
Alternatively, you can install a special extension called Tab Activate. This will do the same trick for you automatically, so holding down the Ctrl + Shift keys won't be required.
