Prevent Chrome from opening an extra tab when searching with Alfred?


Recommended Posts

When Alfred opens Google Chrome to search or do any workflow involving the web, it opens a new tab next to the default new tab page.

 

Is there a way to prevent Chrome from opening this new tab page when Alfred opens it? (it gets annoying always closing this extra tab)

 

Thanks!

Unfortunately, this is a long standing issue (bug) in Google Chrome and you'll get the same behaviour if you click e.g. a link in Mail.app with Chrome quit. The best thing to do is just leave Chrome running (with no windows open) instead of fully quitting, then things work as expected :)

I was afraid that this would be the answer but I guess it isn't that big of an annoyance. Thank you very much for the clarification!
