    Default window.open

    Hi all,
    I need to know how to open a new tab using javascript.

    I try:
    - window.open();
    - window.open("about:blank");
    - eval('window.open("about:blank");void(0)');

    In all cases Chrome opens a new window.

    Is there a way to open a new tab in Chrome using javascript?

    Thanks alot.

    They all open new tab here... Maybe you've got some crazy option enabled/disabled

    Hi, mg2, thanks for your answer.
    I have look for option that might affect the behaviour of open new window instead of open new tab, but I have found nothing.
    Can u give me a suggestion, please?
    What option might cause the opening in new window instead of opening a new tab?
    Thank you very much in advance for your answer.
