Activate new tab by default

Post by flashpeak » Mon Jul 28, 2014 4:07 pm

Currently Slimjet opens a link in background by default when you right click on a link and select "Open In New Tab" or use the quicker way of middle-clicking a link. But I always feel most people would want to open it in foreground when they open a link in new tab. I would like to hear your comments about it. If more people likes it to be activated automatically, I can flip the default value of the switch.

I always believe some will want it one way, others the other way. I suggest always use a selectable option so the user can make their own choice.

I am only talking about the default setting for the option. The option itself is still kept.

We rarely take away options.

Tough question... Depends also if that tab you are opening is more or less important for you - you can also open tabs which you like to visit at a later point, so foreground could be distracting... so i vote for background ;)

I guess the opinions are quite split on this one. I will leave it as it is (background) for now since most Chrome users are used to having it that way.

I like the option to open it in the background but since the latest update it is opening in the foreground even though I do not have that option checked in the settings. :?
