MovableBlog: Hyatt on Tabbed Browsing
March 6, 2003
Dave Hyatt on tabbed browsing: "I strongly support the default in Phoenix, which is to open links in new tabs in the background by default. This option should be overridable with a modifier key (SHIFT in Phoenix) and also the default should be controllable via a pref." Agreed. This is especially useful for reading weblogs, because if there are multiple interesting links in a post, I can load them all in the background without losing my place in the post itself. Plus I love how you can middle-click a link that you know will otherwise load new window—such as the "View Site" button in MT—forcing it it to load into a tab.
