Getting a new tab to switch to it

  • Seems like this should be an obvious preference somewhere, but I'm not seeing it: When I right-click a link and choose "open in new tab" I would like Opera to show me that tab without having to select it. Am I missing a preference? I'm on v46, if it matters.

  • "Open new tab in foreground" is not implemented native in chrome-based browsers (like Opera), so you have no preference for that. I'm helping myself with the shortcut "Command + Shift" and then click the link. It will open in a new tab in the foreground, so you don't need the context-menu and right-click.

  • Thanks.
