Sites where links do not open in background



  • On most sites I visit middle click on links or CTRL + LMB on links open them in background (so just as it should be). I've found that on [url=http://www.rottentomatoes.com]rottentomatoes[/url] these combinations doesn't work. Why does it happen? This issue doesn't exist on Opera 12. Do you know other sites which also act like rottentomatoes?



  • They must be using javascript. If you use the context menu you can open the link in a new tab, but their script catches other clicks. Seen similar scripts before, though the examples I can think of were a lightbox (image viewer popup in the page) which would open the image instead if javascript was disabled.
