A little tip about Firefox

I use Firefox a lot. I use it because I like the way it works. I also use it because I like the way things I don't know about yet work.

Fan boy you say? Think about it, I say. Here's an example:

I know that pressing the Control key (I'm on a PC) and clicking a link will open that link in a new tab without switching to the new tab. I use it all the time. What I just found out was that holding Control down and clicking the Back or Forward buttons does the same. I like that. Imagine one of those crazy web sites where you have to fill in a form, submit it and then get some results. You like the results. You press the back button to get back to the original page because you want the link to email out to those you want to share it with. When you press Forward again, depending on the site, there is a good chance you may never get back to the results again. Ctrl+Back lets me work in a new tab without affecting the results I already have. Simple. Effective.

And that's my tip of the day to share with you.
