Open Links In New Tab?

Postby MikeDead » Mon Sep 28, 2009 11:46 pm

Any chance of maybe having links open in a new tab?

Not that it takes long to just copy the link and post it in a new tab, or press the back button. But often I'll find myself clicking a Youtube link here, watching the video, and before I know it I've watched 15 related videos and have ventured pretty far away from the board LOL

Figured I'd ask.

Mucho Gracias.

If that keyboard shortcut works on my Linux box, I imagine it works with Windows :lol:

And if you are on a Mac you can just hold the Command button and click, and it will open in a new tab.

or if you have a mouse with a scroll wheel you can click the scroll wheel on the link and it'll open it in a new tab
