Feature request - open in new tab

Currently when a link is clicked it opens in the same tab, it would be more convenient if it opened in a new tab. Closing a tab after reading it is better than hitting back button and reloading the forum page, IMHO.

I do that from my browser, when I click a link I all ways open it in a new tab,..
I use the "right" click, and it gives me options to open it in a new tab, as well as other options.

Code: Select all
target="_blank"

With this linked pages open in a new tab. Currently not used on these forums.

If you use a mouse (opposed to a touch pad), clicking the mouse wheel/mouse button 3 generally opens a new tab too. Which I use often. I know with touch pads you need to press both left and right mouse buttons to trigger it.

or use touchpad TapToClick to send the middle button when you use two or three fingers. I've been using mine this way for a long time, middle click has always opened in new tab on every browser I recall, as far back as I can remember?

Touchpad buttons right and left at the same time over a link opens it in a new tab.

i use right-click more often than left-click... usage habits.

that said, i'm sure an addon exists that will do that for you.
