Open links in new tabs

This should be very easy to implement. Clicking on this button:

…should open the link in a new tab by default.

Yes, I know you can use the middle mouse button or right click it and select the option yourself. It even suggests a method below, I see it. It’s only a slight QoL improvement and as such not really worth mentioning, but at the same time implementation should be very, very simple and quick, therefore justifying this thread for me :slight_smile:

Maybe there is a reason as to why it exists as it does, I just can’t see one.

Edit: I would even extend this suggestion to all links inside Apex, such as the “manage” button inside LIC.


I am loathe to me-too a post without adding anything, but in this case there is nothing more to add other than my strong agreement that this would be a welcome QoL improvement, for (I believe) a very low dev burden - add a target="_blank" and rewrite the guidance text to “Link will open in a new browser tab.”


Heavily agreed. A nice QoL improvement so we don’t misclick each time we want to open the webpage.

Completely agree. Not only does it take you away from the game, it also loses any open buffers you have, which is completely annoying.


Side note:

Ctrl + click opens a hyperlink (or a bookmark!) in a new tab, I find it’s way easier to pull off (especially a lot of them) than middle clicking.

I added it to the list for the next maintenance release!
