Epiphany: Open link in new background tab‏

Occasionally I’m using some light web browser to browse the web. Sometimes, you want something different other than your default mainstream browser (Firefox, Chrome/Chromium, Opera).
Epiphany is one of my favorite light browser. The annoying about this browser is that it open links (HTML “<a href>” tag with target=”_blank”) in new window instead of in new tab like mainstream browser.

To open links in new background tab in Epiphany, you can use this trick:

  • press Ctrl + mouse left-click on the link
  • if your mouse is three button (or with mouse-wheel), you can middle-button-click on the link
  • (obvious one) right-click on the link then choose “open link in new tab”
