I've actually read posts on other sites with users saying they had close to 30 or more tabs open at a time
That all - I have 160 at the minute!



How the hell do you go through all that? Because the tabs get smaller and smaller. I guess with a large screen it'll help, but not much, especially with that many tabs open.

If I am not mistaken phpBB 2 did open all links in a new window (tabs had not been "invented" back then).
I don't think it did and opening new browser windows was generally frowned upon regardless of the application.
Now that tabs are around then the need is perhaps not so great and the current "best practice" is, I believe, to open links to the same site in the same tab, as it makes more sense for navigation, and to open external links in a new tab/window.
I would agree to the extent of external links in content.

Unfortunately there are more and more pages, of which there is only one back with close of the browser.
Right click the back arrow. ;)

Not sure what you are getting at but I was referring to the back arrow on the browser itself.

Hello thecoalman, precisely and I can also use at this point the "right-click" to choose whether I want to open the arrow (back, forward) in a new WINDOW or TAB. So decide on this point also itself, what I consider important. :D

Best regards

I'm a computer freak, but with so many tabs open, even I'd get a heart crisis. :shock: :lol:

It doesn't always work. Some pages are blocked, so you can't get away from them. :evil:

it's a real PITA every time I click a link it opens in the same tab and I then have to use the back button
Alternatively start using your keyboard: for most internet browser holding down CTRL while clicking forces a new tab (while SHIFT forces a new window). Likewise ALT+LEFT goes back to the previously visited site (and ALT+RIGHT goes forward once you did go backwards).

It also comes down to the internet browser and how it lets you make settings per website - years ago Opera (v12 and before) could be configured perfectly for all that without being bound to what the website owner wanted or missed. The internet browser was even smart enough to let you do that on form submittings (speak: like using the editor here when making a reply, and then holding down CTRL while clicking on the "Submit" button would open a new tab with the outcome, while the original editor was left untouched - this was great in unstable environments and you disliked typing texts again and again).

only this site I have to remember to middle mouse button the link to open in a new tab. Damn near every site I've come across opens a link in a new tab. Why this website can't do that is asinine.
No, the opposite is. And I fear you don't want it to be consistent, just like the example I already mentioned: that clicking form buttons would also force a new tab. Up to this day I don't understand website owners that force me to do at least 5 clicks (and then I the actual data is still hidden in a PDF) with the outcome of having 5 new tabs - as if I'm never done reading any of the previous pages.

I don't have mouses with a middle button: there's always the wheel. Didn't mouses with a middle button extinct when the wheel was invented?

Now there are 5 buttons and wheel instead of only 3 buttons.

Doesn't the wheel have a button function also?
