News window or new tab?

The new tab function in build 326 caused some confusion in when GreatNews opens new browser window and when opens a new tab. GreatNews works this way:

  • By default, clicking a rss link will open the link in the same tab. SHIFT+Click will open in new browser window. Middle-click will open in new tab.
  • If “open rss link in external browser” option was selected, clicking a rss link will always open in new window.
  • If “disable tabbed browsing” option was selected, all new tab functions will open in new window instead.

Hope this can clarify some confusions.

    When using middle-click, it will still load the clicked item(blog entry). If I wanna load it in a new tab, I have to create a new
    tab by using Ctrl+T first. And select the new tab, then middle-click the blog entry, it will be loaded into that new tab.

    Then why not integrate this two steps into one? If you middle-click a blog entry, it will create a new tab atuomatically first,
    and then load the content in that tab?

    Thanks for your great work on GreatNews :)

    Middle-click should create a new tab and load the link on that tab. You don’t need to press CTRL+T first. The problem you are experiencing might be a bug in GreatNews. Please let me know the url of the problemtic feed. Thanks -Jack

    How do I get middle click to work on a two button mouse ???

  5. GreatNews Says:

    Ravi, I plan to add CTRL+Click to simulate middle button. It’s the behavior FireFox users might expect.

  6. RodeoClown Says:

    Is it possible to maybe have a toggle for this, to switch between middle-click opening in a new window or a new tab?
    (maybe just have a ‘tabs enabled’ toggle, and when it is off no tabs get opened at all – only windows).

    I use tabs in firefox lots, but I like reading actual pages in firefox, not through the RSS reader.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    I added the option to disable tabbed browsing in Build 327. You can get the latest build in nightly build area.

    Get a dog or cat that can sing opera. It’s always worked for me.
