Hi, Jamal just told me that in Internet Explorer, Shift Enter opens a new tab, while in Firefox, Control Enter opens a new tab.

I want to know before I hit Enter if it's going to open a new page in the same tab, or a new page in another tab, because I want to know whether I'm goint to press Alt Left Arrow to get back, or Control F4 to close the tab to get back. Usually, though, I try Alt Left, and if that doesn't' work, Control F4.

Jaws announces a new tab or a new browser window after you click on the link. Is that good enough? --le ----- Original Message ----- From: Homme, James<mailto:james.homme@xxxxxxxxxxxx> To: Homme, James<mailto:james.homme@xxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Wednesday, July 20, 2011 6:50 AM Subject: Maybe I'm Not Such An Old Dog Hi, I know that popping open new browser windows is against accessibility guidelines, but I'm beginning to re-think my aversion to doing that, partly because I like the new way browsers open windows. I like tabs. I also like that when I return to the previous tab, I'm exactly where I left off reading. Recently, with more dynamic pages, it has become more and more unreliable to use the back button to get back to where I was. I'm even experimenting with opening links in a separate browser window on purpose. I'd still like to know, though, if a link is about to open in a separate window, even if it's for informational reasons. JAWS does a good job, though, of telling me that a new tab has opened.
