On my PC, using Mozilla Firefox, latest version, was getting so *buggy*, I gave up.
So I changed to Google Chrome browser.
I am getting used to it, but I like to know, if anybody can tell me how to get the following done.

One tab open. Open up a link in another tab.

How do I make sure that the focus goes immediately to the newly opened tab ?

Mozilla Firefox has a setting where you can easily have that occur.
On the Chrome browser, I have not been able to find the option to do that.

TIA

Check this extension out:

Quote:
Brings newly created tabs to the foreground.
With this extension, newly created tabs are activated instead of left to linger hidden behind other tabs. Try it by right clicking on a link and selecting "Open link in new tab". You'll be shown the new tab right way instead of having to click it first.

I went from Mozilla Firefox to Google Chrome several years ago, and in the last few months, have moved back to Mozilla Firefox as my main browser, with Google Chrome being used occasionally. For me, I felt Google Chrome was starting to get buggy and slow, and Firefox seemed to be faster.

I like Firefox better, but i've been using chrome lately. I dislike the tab setting, but I'm only temporarily using it.

People assume web browsers are a kind of miracle. They aren't.
Differences between them are relatively minor and most casual work can be done quite well from all.
The differences are important mostly for programmers.
Buggy or not: browsers collect garbage and bloatware from visited websites. So, disable add-ons. Clear browsing data, cookies, history, maybe even reset all.

I was using Firefox before but it was too slow. I updated it as well but I was not satisfied. So finally I moved to Chrome. Its not going for crash, never freeze and very fast. But I have concern with privacy. Does Google tracking us with it? Does anybody know about it?

You can get your answer by looking at your search history. Type in a new search word and you'll see how chrome "suggests" and directs to websites you already visited. Also pop-ups that refer to your known buying habits.
