New tab?

How about a new tab, instead of a new window?

New Tab?

I am with you, I would also prefer new tab, I usually end the day with a lot of tabs open, but I do not like a lot epiphany windows opened.

re: links

I'd use "same window". Because if you force a "new window" there's no way around it - but if you use "same window" people can always right-click and chose "new tab or new window" whatever they prefer.

Links duality

I find it very distracting. Better to choose one. Smile

re: Links duality

I plan to. It's a bit of a pain to do both. I was kinda waiting for the results of the poll. It looks like "same window" has pulled ahead. It was pretty much even for a while.

No difference

Doesn't matter to me cause I do it from Thunderbird......

Thanks for the hard work!

) So mobile isn't coded on

So mobile isn't coded on the site?
I just assumed it was as it just seems to fit.......

same window for me. I

same window for me. I usually open it in a new tab but if I forget, at least I don't have another firefox window open.

Hmmmm. Then again, on my i-phone I prefer a new window.

Perhaps php would do the trick?
[append some string to every link, in place of _blank or _new place the string, as in:
a href=”http://www.tuxmachines.org” target=”_myString”>TuxMachines.org]

(add to whatever pages you want the function on)

?php
//sets the string uastring the value of your useragent
$uastring = ($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'];
//searches your useragent for the text iPhone,
//if it is there set myString the value new.
$strpos (uastring, "iPhone") if !FALSE myString = "new";
else myString = "blank";
?>

(Although the link may not work if its outside the php, I'm not great at php Smile Feel free to correct me!)

    I've discussed elsewhere that usability is about real people doing real tasks in a reasonable amount of time. Some researchers also refer to "learnability" and "memorability" to define usability—this is very similar to discoverability. Can you discover the features of the system just by poking at it? Is the user interface obvious enough that you can figure it out on your own?
