Pinned Out

A Chrome extension for opening links from pinned tabs in a new tab, thus preserving the pinned tab's state/location.

For anyone, like me, who pins tabs for a reason.


  • Exclude domains from being affected
  • Option to open all links or only external links in a new tab
  • Syncs options across computers*

Suggestions and contributions are welcome.
