Why Don't Links Open In A New Window

Recommended Posts

Does my head in - seems to be a difference as to whether someone pastes the link into a post and whether they use the hyperlink 'chain' above.

There appears to be no rhyme and reason to it - sometimes a new window opens, sometimes it does not.

In the grand scheme of life, it is not a priority for me though :unsure:

Deep breaths, let it go.

If you're using Firefox (and you should be!)

Right click on link, select 'Open link in new tab'.

Easy peasy!

I'd say 'simples' but everytime I see someone write that I die a little inside.............

Do your mice not have the middle wheel click? (Click the wheel down and a new tab should open.)

ED: While hovering over the link, of course.

And, any chance of being able to edit your posts when using IE?

Can't believe anyone can create a web based app that you can't edit when using what I think is still the most commonly used browser.

Thankfully this is no longer true.

Fewer people are using that piece of shit.

Even Chrome has more users than ie8.

I do use firefox and occaisionally I remember to right click and open in new tab... but when I forget it's a nuisance.

Just such a minor point I know but drives me mad.

Single middle button (scroll wheel) click.

I didn't realise how fast things are moving.

On various stats from websites I work on, IE is still the majority. Firefox is catching up and other browsers such as Chrome and Opera are gaining marketshare but IE still holds the majority. I think this is still the case throughout the web although IE's share is slowly shrinking.

I use Firefox and find it so much better and much more customisable than IE.

This works but sometimes I read on the iPod touch at home and it doesn't have a right click or mouse scroll-wheel option. Ideally all links in posts would open in a new tab if possible.

You're right.

I was going on these stats.

w3schools

They have FF as 50% higher than IE.

I use Chrome. I also use FF for script debugging (firebug is really good). Only use ie for testing and invariably there's a bug in it.

You've got it the wrong way round, you actually mean:

"Can't believe anyone can create a web browser that doesn't adhere to W3C / IETF / ISO Web Standards".
