Could you set Lemmy to open external links in a new window/tab? Especially on the desktop it is annoying to always have to remember to click the link with the middle mouse button, or just in conjunction with ctrl.

  • Plus its not difficult in the slightest to click and hold, middle click, right click -> new tab, etc.

    It may be more difficult than you think for certain individuals with differing abilities.

    The option to change this behavior in the setting somewhere can give everyone the experience they are looking for. Perhaps that should be pursued? 😄
