Better Tabbed Browsing

Want to open a link without leaving the page you are on? You don’t have to close down your webmail just to read the new Dilbert someone was kind enough to forward to everyone. Use this simple shortcut to open the link in a new tab, leaving the current page open.

To open a link in a new tab, just click the middle button on your mouse. That button is most commonly disguised as the scroll wheel. Just press it down instead of rolling it. No dice? If you are using an older, two button mouse, you can right-click the link and choose “Open in new tab” to achieve the same effect.

Now just click on the new tab to view the page you just opened. Your original page will still be there when you close the new tab.

If you aren’t clicking a link, but still need a new, pristine tab, try the following keyboard shortcut.

New Tab = Ctrl + T

Bonus shortcut:

Close Tab = Ctrl + W
