I notice in other forums that I frequent that when one clicks on a link, that link will open in a new window. That's nice in that one can continue to have the forum site open for further browsing. Might be nice to consider that type of link behavior in mobileread.

you can open any link in a new tab or window by using right click "open in new tab" or "open in new window" or clicking the center mouse button.

having links which automatically open in new tabs or windows is actually frowned upon in general, as it makes the site less accessible (it breaks the "back" button therefore making navigation less transparent) for people who are disabled (such as blind people using a voice synthesiser and keyboard navigation to visit the site).

i like to open links in new tabs so i can continue reading the page i'm in and then move on to the other pages, so i just center click the links.

Or just right-click, if you are using Internet Explorer.
