Control Click for Chrome
« on: August 30, 2010, 12:14:43 AM »
It was bugging me that middle clicking a link in Chrome opened in a new tab behind the other tabs.  I found out the standard combination to open in a new foreground tab is Control-Shift-Left Click on the link.  I don't like holding down 2 keys as it's just awkward.  I made this ahk to do the job on middle mouse click.  Thought someone else may find it handy. You can even use it with Speed-dial. The dial you middle click will open in a new tab in foreground instead of replacing the Speed-dial page:

SendMode Input

#IfWinActive, ahk_class Chrome_WidgetWin_0
^LButton::
  Send, ^+{LButton}
Return

edit: since posting it's become evident this interferes with mouse middle click drag to scroll in the browser.  I just changed the hotkey to ^LButton.  At least I don't have to hold down 2 keys while clicking.

I combined Control-Click with Transpose, since I always use both functions in Chrome.  Transpose lets you hit Control-t to swap the 2 characters to the left of the caret.  I like that method of fixing typos on the fly. Add class names to the script to add editors/browsers to "EditorGroup" to get Control-t in more apps.

The Control-Click functionality is limited to Chrome.

  ClipSaved = ; free memory
