Description Adrián Chaves (Gallaecio) 2012-07-22 07:20:32 UTC
When you right-click a link or a selected (URL) text, you get the options to open it in a new tab or in a new window. I think it would be nice to also be able to open it in the current tab instead.

Reproducible: Always

Patch to apply the feature.

Implementation is easy, I wrote the patch while trying to figure out where to start to solve https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=237095.

NOTE: This does not solve the referenced issue at all, although it is related.

Guess if url is on target blank and eventually show a describing icon

We show "window-new" or blank target links and "mail-message-new"
on mailto ones. The same as Konqueror does :)

Also, based on the hovering guess, shown different contextual menus

This feature is not available in Rekonq 2.0 (tested from http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml_a_target), didn’t the commit fixed it?
Comment 7 Andrea Diamantini 2013-01-13 09:11:09 UTC
1.x and 2.0 diverged at same point. It needs to be "backported".

Git commit c7fa562d5e2bf312700b1f02863535887f80ba48 by Andrea Diamantini.

I would not re-enable the "describing" icon part because it is NOT
really working here. I'm having troubles when I show the icon and
switch pages.
Hope this is enough
