I'm using JavaScript and I'm trying to open a new page but in a different tab (Google Chrome) but stay on my current one. I tried this code below:
open('http://example.com/');
focus();
But Chrome, for some reason, flashes the new tab and then goes back to the old one. I want to stay on the old page the entire time.
