If you are browsing on sites like 4Chan or Reddit regularly where dozens of images get posted on a single page, you probably have discovered ways to make the browsing more comfortable. Maybe you installed a browser extension like Multi Links for the Firefox web browser or LinkClump for Google Chrome, or an image related extension to download images posted directly to your computer.
Img2Tab is another option that you have for Chrome. It introduces an interesting option, that is, the ability to open all images on or linked on a page in a single tab in the browser. All it takes is to install the extension from the official Chrome extensions repository. The extension works automatically on every new page you open while old pages need to be reloaded once before the options become available.
To use it afterwards, right-click anywhere on the page you want to use it on and select one of the im2tab options it makes available in the context menu. There you find the following four options:
It may take a while before all images are opened in the new tab or tabs depending on the size and number of images that you open this way.
The option to load all images on a single page is certainly an attractive one as it may improve image browsing considerable. Instead of having to browse each image one by one, you can simply select the option to load them all at once in a tab, look at all of them there, download some if you want, and browse to the next page on the site to repeat the process.
