Go to web address + shift = new tab

  • Some websites (e.g., imageboards) do not allow URLs to be posted as clickable links, but text only.

    You have to select the text and either copy it to the address bar, or use "go to web address" from right-click menu.

    Holding the shift key when selecting "go to web address" should open the URL in a new tab.

    Thank you.

    "Open image in new tab" should be "open image".

    Only holding shift should open in new tab.

    Hmm, not here. "Open image in new tab" always open them in a new tab.

  • Yes, that is how it is right now, which I dislike. Hence my suggestion to change both the name and the function.

  • I'm definitely going to have to add my support to this suggestion. It is extremely inconvenient to be unable to open a highlighted URL in a new tab via the context menu.
