Open link in r-click menu

  • Hi there! By default right-click menu for a link suggests 'Open in a new tab' as the first item which opens a link in a new tab and then switches to that tab. In Opera, FF, Chrome (all browsers) behavior for the first item is 'Open in a new background tab'. I've used to this behavior and the fact that vivaldi behaves differently is really annoying. Would you please bring this in line with other browsers/add setting for that. Thanks.

    I find the Vivaldi method to be the traditional and proper one.

    Other browsers no longer do it that way. I think they are wrong.

  • So I find that Vivaldi is wrong. It is a matter of taste and nothing to argue about. Additional option in settings will make everybody happy.

    Correct. An option would be good.

  • Miss a further option: Open here (in same tab) - some sites open links by deafult in new tab and that can become annoying as well

    I'm not sure browser coding can really do anything about that. That is coded right into the link itself! And if a browser is able to open a new tab, a link can force it to.

    The HTML code: target =" _blank"> (if I remember correctly) will always cause a browser to open a new tab (or window if not a tabbed browser) and then direct it to the address specified after the ">". I don't know that there is any way to prevent that.

  • You're right, Ayespy, target="_blank" is what causes links to be opened in a new tab. This:```
