Thanks so much.
For me, I like things set up to have new information open in a new tab. I might be scrolling down a long thread, click a link and have it open along side of the page I’m on and I don’t loose my place.
Hey Richard, you don’t mention which browser you use, but in Firefox and Internet Explorer (and probably Chrome, etc.), all you need to do is right-click the link and choose Open Link in New Tab from the context-sensitive drop-down list that appears.
