What is Open Same Tab?

Open Same Tab is an Edge add-on that allows you to make links open in the same tab for specific webpages. It is designed to counter search engines' strategy of keeping users on their search results page by forcing each search result to open in a new tab. With Open Same Tab, you can easily click the toolbar icon on a search results page to remember the domain and make links open in the same page. To remove the domain, simply visit the page and click the toolbar icon again.

Summary
Analyze keywords

Nowadays search engines are greedy and want to keep you on their search results page for as long as possible. That's why they make each search result open in a new tab.

With this extension, simply click the toolbar icon when you are on a search results page, and the extension will remember the domain of the page and the next time you are on that page, the extension will force links to open in the same page.

To remove the domain from the extension, simply visit the same page and click the toolbar icon again.

It does not work, or you instructions are unclear.

The only extension I've found that actually manages to force the office webapp to open documents inside the app window. L'unica che ho trovato che blocca la web app di office online da aprire i documenti nel browser. I documenti si aprono nella finestra della web app.
