Standard behavior for 3-button mouse
Authored by: leamanc on Aug 16, '10 02:49:24PM

It's cool that Apple is adding this functionality to Safari, as opening an item in a new tab is standard functionality for the third button on a mouse in Unix-like systems. I was always peeved that earlier versions of Safari did not follow this convention, while Firefox did.

It irks me to have to hold down a key (or right-click and choose from the contextual menu) to get an item to open in a new tab, so I'm glad that this is there now in Safari. Now if I could just make myself use Safari more...Chrome has snuck in to the #1 spot in my browser wars, bumping Firefox to #2. Now that Safari has (official, non-hackish) extensions and other cool features, I'd like to use it more, but I spent a lot of time with other browsers while Apple was improving Safari.
