Open link in new window?

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

That’s correct, it breaks accessibility. Also I don’t understand why ppl can’t do either a middle mouse click, or on mobile touch and hold. The net is pretty scatterbrained with not knowing which clicks are gonna open up new tabs, why not just have it uniform, explicit, and accessible friendly.

3 that I can think of that open up things in new tabs by default, are new reddit, startpage, and google.

I think, the question here is why add code - that will have to be maintained - for a feature that is already implemented in your browser?

I understand that mobile users have to add one touch to achieve the same result but PC users Litterally only have to use just another mouse button, that does not seem to be that big an adjustment.

If that is really important I read down this post that someone implemented it as an extension, maybe that’s the way to go, or use a mobile app, as lemmur which works as intended?

If I understand correctly, this is a feature that would only benefit mobile users who either way have workarounds available.

I’m not saying it should never be implemented but there could be more pressing issues to address.
