It is frustrating when the links clicked on use the same window, taking you away from the topic you were looking at, and when you return back to the topic, you start at the beginning again.

Just a personal thing, but I would like to see the links open in a separate window, that way they can be minimized and viewed later, not losing time reloading pages…

Especially difficult when I am on a slow dial-up connection…

Anyone else have the same feeling?

Browsers on Linux and Windows usually support a "right click" menu (right for righties, left for lefties) that offers you the option of opening the link in another window or in another tab. I imagine Macs have something similar but I haven't used one in years (geeze - its been two decades!)

Dialup takes a lot of the fun out of the Internet.

I'm not disagreeing with you, but, like GregD, I suggest right-click New Tab. I do this so much that I find myself doing it on pages that do pop a new windows.

I've got my browser configured to open tabs in the background so I can load up several tabs at once from the same page and then view them at my leisure.

Well, where was my head? I have used that countless times.

Thanks for putting me back on track.

And yes, dial up does take the fun out of it.

On most of the browsers I use (and, yes, I use 4 different browsers on 5 different platforms), control-click opens the link in a new tab in the background. So I run down a page control-clicking, and by the time I'm ready to read the tabs I've read they've already loaded and, better, any stupid splash screen ads or whatever have already played.
