More about this extension

Makes the tab from which another tab was opened active again. (Or, puts the new tab “in the background”.)
Sites like Google Reader and Brizzly, open links in a foreground tab when pressing “v”. This extension will re-select the tab from which the new tabs were opened. In fact, it will do this for all tabs that are opened with the “window.open” function.
This is the behavior many people have grown accustomed to, since this is how it works in a certain other browser (*cough*IE*cough*).

Change Log:

Simplified code.
