Hi all,


When i write a link using target="_blank", this one opens in a second k-meleon browser instead of in a new tab. Is it normal ? what should i write to open my url in a new tab ?

Thank you in advance.

Where are you writing the link? Are you writing a macro or a web page?

Set it in the browser:
F2 (Preferences) > Browsing
click the dropdown field and check the various settings to open all sorts of stuff in a new tab.

click on tab "Window Diversion" and change the settings there too

No idea if that can only be set in a browser or if there's a (new?) html command for it...

I'm writing web pages. i would like to allow readers of my site to compare easily datas displayed on different internal pages (by switching from one tab to another).
Siria has already showed me the way to do so on my navigator...

Yes, it is normal.

There are _blank, _self. Else _parent, _top.

But I know none to force open as a tab. Remember not all browsers know tab.
