Why does the Forum open in a new Window ? GAG

Recommended Posts

In the news-carousel 1 item is dedicated to the new blog, so you can keep an eye out for that one.

About the new tab, personally I find that very convenient. I usually hate it when everything opens in the same tab because sometime I just want to take a peek or quick browse and I don't want to click 'Back' 8 times to return to my original page. Now you can just close this tab. Or the other one. :)

I'm afraid I agree with Ian... I would rather that it opened in the same window instead of a new one. With this site I come here to go to the forum. When I click on the forum I want to go there, I do not need the homepage to stay up... It's just an extra thing to close. To me, the navigation bar should be navigating the site - i.e. going from one page to another. Also, I _hate_ tabbed browsing... I have 3 large monitors and I work with my desktop like a real desktop - I spread my windows across it..... I always disable tabbed browsing and open things in new windows when I want them, then I can tile my windows and just move my head/eyes to read them... I move my windows around to stack them in whatever way is most efficient for the task at hand... Often I stack related windows on one monitor and windows related to something else on another monitor like stacks of paper on a desk....

So basically, when I'm navigating from page to page on a site and it opens a new window it just ends up polluting my desktop. To me, this is like reading a book, but instead of flipping one page over to the next I'm ripping each page out when I'm done so I end up having a lot of loose pages that I don't want and just have to toss in the garbage bin..

Sorry... I'm rather nit-picky when it comes to user interfaces.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
