This userscript will add a list (initially hidden in an expandable div) containing links to every question listed on a tag page (i.e., questions/tagged/something). When a link in this list is clicked, it goes away. This allows you to easily open up many questions with this tag at the same time. Simply ctrl-click on the first link, then keep clic…
