Description

A little thing I find annoying is that Web+ will always switch to the new tab when you open it, preventing you from opening several tabs and then looking at them one-by-one.

Added a possible patch to the issue.

Middle click opens a new background tab. Right click > open in new tab opens a new foreground tab. Your patch breaks this by ignoring the "activate" bool and always using the setting from the preferences.

I would prefer to keep the current behavior, because:

  • It makes it possible to do either
  • It does not need an extra setting in the preferences (we try to keep things simple there)

I can understand that it's a problem if your mouse does not have a 3rd button, however.

I think our behavior is similar to other web browsers on this (but don't have one to check at the moment).

Replying to pulkomandy:

Yes, on notebooks too. A mouse+keyboard combo like SHIFT+LMB to open in new tab in the background would be nice.

Marking patch as obsolete, as discussed above a modifier key makes more sense.
