Tabs Open Relative

I mentioned last week in the Thoughts: Chrome Not Importing Fx Settings post that Chrome opens a new tab just to the right of the current tab.

I clicked on a link in an email and Chrome opened this link in a new tab right next to my Windows Live Mail instead of the end of the tab bar. I am sure this is possible with Firefox 3 with one of the tab extensions, but it is nice to see Chrome does this by default.

Turns out, the Tabs Open Relative extension does just that. So when opening a link into a new tab, the tab opens to the right of the current tab instead of at the end of the tab bar.

Tabs Open Relative is about 5 KB, publicly available via AMO and works with Firefox 1.5, 2.0, 3.0 and 3.1a1pre
