I'd like it if any and every link I click in NewsBlur opens up in the background. An option for this would be great. I did search for this topic, and it seems like it's a very old feature request that was promised months ago, but it must have slipped Sam's mind.
I think the thing is that browsers doesn't really allow developers to decide how new tabs are opened anymore, i.e a new tab in the background.
For whatever reason, this more or less works for me? Nowadays, I expect a left-click to open the link in the current tab, and middle-click to open the link in a new tab in the background, and so far NewsBlur seems to match my expectations...
