So I use Chrome and I love control-clicking when I'm on a site with stories, just line up a bunch of articles open in background tabs then go through and read them. Recently (maybe a week or two), this doesn't work on ESPN.com. The website just behaves as if I clicked without Control. I checked and this behavior is also present on Firefox, but not IE.
I think I know WHY they do it (two theories are 1. to save bandwidth cos some people probably open the tabs but never read the stories and 2. to more accurately track who's seen the ads).
But what I'd like to know is, is there a relatively simple configuration change I can make to get control-clicking back? If not, is there a complicated one?
