A revelation!

I recently discovered something, that has revolutionised my blog hopping habits! It is a very small thing and probably already known by every other blog hopper out there, but it was big news to me!
I visit a blog, find an interesting link, click on it, find another interesting link, click on it....you know how this goes. Before I know it an hour has disappeared and I have no idea where I started! But....and it's a very clever but....if you hold down the shift key, while clicking on that link, it opens in a whole new window. Hey presto! No more getting lost and forgetting where all those other interesting links took you.

Yes!! I never knew that, thank you very much :) I kept going through the faff of 'right click, then select open in new window....' so this is going to save me a lot of time, thank you! x

I knew you could open a link in a new window, by right-clicking and selecting that option; but I didn't know that using the Shift key was a short-cut to doing this! Thank you for the quick and clever new method - wonderful!

on a PC, ctrl+click (from memory - I have a mac at home these days) will open stuff in a new tab... Sometimes easier than extra windows...
I'm also a fellow classmate from Shimelle's...
