Open link in new window?

That would be a nice feature, unless I’m missing it

You mean you need an extra button/link on the interface? The options provided by your os / browser aren’t good enough? (Either middle click or Ctrl+click on PC, long tap on mobile)

They want normal clicks to open in new tabs, it’s a popular feature request.

Ok I didn’t understand the request. I think not opening in a new window would not be a problem if by hitting the “back” link it would take you back exactly where you were before opening the link (as reddit works I think, I remember it opening a modal window).

Anyway if this gets implemented It would need to be a setting as some people (yeah you guessed right I’m part of those) would find that annoying, I don’t like a website deciding for me where a link should be opened (unless again it’s opened in the same window but in a modal).

I rather use middle click on my computer and on android the lemmur client works exactly as reddit.
