Making Google Chrome Use Windows Instead Of Tabs

Sun Aug 21, 2011 8:45 pm

Greetings all. Recently I've given Google Chrome a shot, and I really like it, except for one thing, tabs. I've searched for any way to make it open things in new windows rather than a tab, but I'm not sure such an option exists. Is there a way to fix this. Some may call it petty, but it really is a deal breaker, and the whole reason I still use Firefox. I just don't like tabs.

Thanks in advance

Right click and then click "open page in new window" or whatever it actually says.

Sorry. I should have been more specific. I know I can do that, but I find it irritating to do every time I want to open something up. I'm looking for a left click and a new window to immediately pop up instead of a tab. First world problems at their finest

OK, try this: when something opens up in a new tab, click and drag the new tab to the center of the window and it will form a new window. You can also drag a window (it will turn to a smaller version of the window) back up to the tab bar (I just made that name up) to make it back into a tab.

Hold down shift when you click.

Tab management is the one thing I dislike too. There is nothing equivalent to Tab Mix Plus. Its really a shame what they've done to Firefox lately.

I forgot what it was like to browse without tabs.. Why don´t you like tabs if I may ask, I find them much better than opening everything up in different windows..
There is something special about planes....

There's just something pleasing to my eye about keeping things organized on my taskbar on the bottom rather than up at the top. I guess it was just what I grew up doing and I never wanted to change.
