I just discovered that the following is possible (for anyone who finds it very inconvenient to move tabs around after every
Cmd+T while waiting for the next release):
- In current tab, select address bar contents (e.g., by hitting
- Type search or URL where you want the new tab to go
(At this point, in background, a new tab will open as a first child of the current tab)
(At this point, current tab’s address bar will reset back to its address)
Cmd+Shift+] to switch to the newly opened tab
Takes 2–3 seconds.
As a bonus, since in this case the new tab is opened in background (I hope this behavior doesn‘t change), it makes it very quick to spawn many tabs as children to the current tab one after another (useful during research): just don’t do step 4 and 5 above, and instead repeat steps 1 to 3 however many times needed.
