Tap To Tab
Double-click (double tap) on a link to open it in a new Tab. Designed for tablets and laptop trackpads.
What is Tap To Tab?
'Tap To Tab' is an innovative Edge add-on for tablets and laptops. It allows users to double-click any link to open it in a new tab, mimicking the 'open link in a new tab' option in the browser's menu. This add-on eliminates the need for an external mouse or complex gestures, providing a seamless browsing experience. The add-on permits users to specify the location of the new tab and the operation of the newly opened tab. Moreover, users can also add domain names into a blacklist for increased control over their browsing experience.
Designed specifically for touch-screen tablets and laptops with trackpads (as those devices don't have mouses with two buttons) you can now double-click on any link to open it in a new tab.
This extension works similar to the "open link in new tab" option in the browser's popup menu. But this extension is faster, because performing the right-click action without an external mouse is much slower.
You can configure in the settings window to:
- how the newly opened tab; or open new tab in background
- Put new tab next to current tab; or put at the end of the tab strip
- Add any domain name into a blacklist
No longer will you have to hold down the button and wait for the popup menu, or perform complex mouse gestures to accomplish this seemingly common action.
