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.

OK. new window in mobile and same window in 'normal' Smile))

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!)

Kernel 3.18 development – the kernel column

Linus Torvalds announced Linux 3.17, the Shuffling Zombie Juror, saying, “The past week was fairly calm, and so I have no qualms about releasing 3.17 on the normal schedule”. The latest kernel includes a number of nice headline features, such as the new getrandom() system call and sealed files APIs that we covered in previous issues of LU&D. Linux 3.17 also includes support for less highlighted new features, such as new signature checking of kexec()’d kernel images and sparse files on Samba file systems (which is significant for those mounting Windows and Mac shares).

The Weston-IVI work dates back many months and today's revision to the shell marks its eighth public version as it still seeks to be accepted into mainline Weston. Read more

Python 3 Support Added To The GNOME Shell

The GNOME Shell 3.15.2 release fixes some visual glitching, improves the layout of the extension installation dialog, supports the CSS margin property, and offers other bug fixes and minor enhancements. Most notable to GNOME Shell 3.15.2 though is there's finally Python 3 support. Many GNOME components have long ported their Python 2 code to Python 3 while GNOME Shell's Python support has just received the Py3 treatment. Details on GNOME's overall Python 3 porting work can be found via this Wiki page. Read more
