Opens a new window directly to the right of the current window and wraps when the window reaches the edge of the monitor.
This Chrome extension opens new windows directly to the right of the current window (instead of Chrome's default cascading behavior).
Why does this matter?
Like many people, my Chrome window is always set to take the maximum vertical space on my monitor (but not the maximum horizontal space).
Unfortunately, whenever you open a new Chrome window, Chrome cascades new windows down and to the right by default. This means that every new window starts off with part of its window off screen.
That's extremely annoying!
There are 3 major features that make up the functionality of this extension:
This extension opens new windows directly to the right of the current window.
Right edge protection:
Even better, this extension will also protect against opening a new window with any part of its window off screen to the right. In that case, the new window will open on the left side of the screen.
New windows always fully appear on the same monitor from the window they were spawned from. (Note: The source monitor is determined by the location of the top left corner of the last focused window.)
This keeps windows from opening with their window split across multiple monitors or having a window appear on a different monitor than the one you were originally working on (less mental context switching).
I hope you find this as useful as I have!
