I have a friend who recently switched from PC to a Macbook Air. She's using Google Chrome and telling me that often times when she clicks a link it is opening in a new window, and that behavior seems strange to her because it doesn't happen on the PC.
I know in Google Chrome you can use
Command to force a link to open in a new tab, but is there sort of the opposite: a way to keep a link from opening in a new tab?
She also mentioned that sometimes when she clicks on dropdown style menus in webpages (generated with the
<select> element, that they won't actually drop down.
I can't think of any settings that would be causing this strange behavior (I thought about the Chrome preferences and also the trackpad preferences) - but are there any?
So in summary:
1) Is there a way on Chrome to force links to open in the current tab?
2) Are there any settings chrome/trackpad/etc that would be causing strange behaviors?
3) Does anyone know of a good test page for testing different types of links?
