View Full Version : [Question] MicroB 'open link in new window' without switching to it?
05-03-2011, 06:00 PM
I like to open lots of links and then go through them, this means currently i have to keep switching back to the index page each time i open one. Is there a way to make the default that it opens in a window in the background?
Im guessing its a no but theres no harm in a little hope ;)
I don't have an answer, but i totally agree!
Opening without switching would be much better for the way i use Micro B

Its a NO i'm afraid. Nokia were asked many times about this trough bug reports, requests etc but they didn't provide a solution and since MicroB is closed source no one else can.

Hey, 2009 called, they want their request back.

Hey, 2000 called, they said that "some year" called jokes were lame even back then :D

I remember reading that the feature was implemented internally but didn't get included in PR1.3. In the bug report/feature request, it is said that though microb is closed, the codes involved are microb-eal (or something like that) and they are available on maemo.org.

me too, and it's for this reason that i mostly use opera...although you can do it in firefox too.

People, nuances matter: It's not MicroB is closed source - the MicroB UI is closed source. The underlying web rendering engine is straight from Firefox, and so much of the inner workings are perfectly open source.

This *could* be doable from hildon-desktop/hildon-home but I doubt it'll ever work properly.
I am officially bursting your bubble of having this fixed.

Depends on who's bubble. My bubble depends on someone recoding the closed parts of MicroB for the CSSU... someday.
