Description Allen Winter 2023-06-19 13:34:34 UTC
This is a wish.

When opening a file, the new tab is opened all the way to the right.
It would be nice to have the new tab open to the immediate right of the currently active tab.

use case: I typically have quite a few tabs open and it's a bit of a pain to have to scroll all the way to the right to find the newly opened tab.
