Google Chrome - Open pop-ups in new tab?

Is there a way to set Google Chrome so that it opens pop-ups in tabs instead of opening new windows?

"There is a 3 step workaround you can do this by

You should know when the popup will be opened. Popups are blocked in chrome by default. But chrome will show a popup blocked notification in bottom right corner.
click on notification to select always accept popup from this specific site
Reload the main (parent) page. This will load the popup in small windows. Right click in titlebar of popup window and select ""Show As Tab"". Once popup is transformed in a window with tab, you can drag it back to main window.

Hope this helps.

Thanks."

"In Firefox, you can do this easily by changing the config. But as for now, Google Chrome does not have anything like this and it's annoying.

However, you can use a third-party extension to do this. I'm using 'Open link in same tab, pop-up as tab [Free]' extension offered by sergiy.net and it works perfectly.

You can check whether this is working or not by visiting this website.

If you don't want to use those extensions, then the most simple solution is to Ctrl + Click the link you think it's a pop-up: it will be open as a new tab.

"Popup Intercept - One Window

Is my next solution to One Window. The only downside for me is that you need to explicitly add each of the websites to be able make it work. I'm now using an unpacked version of this to make it work with all sites."
