Tab Activate Review

*** New Feature by Request ***
Tab Activate now supports bookmarks!

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

----------------------------------------

By default, Chrome opens new tabs in the background and provides no option to switch to them immediately.

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

To override Tab Activate and open new tabs in the background, press the Shift key while opening the new tab.

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

----------------------------------------

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 requested permissions. Absolutely no data is changed or collected.

----------------------------------------
