Open in new tab

In the lesson mode, I don’t want to navigate away from the current path, no matter what I click on. As an example, when I want to check out a Kanji from the Kanji Composition section, the entire page relocates. E.g.:

EDIT: I don’t ask for “how can I open it up in a new tab”. This is plain feedback on how I, as a user, expect the page to behave.


Which device are you using?

On a PC use CTRL-click that is click while pressing the control key. This opens the link in a new tab.

If you are on a Mac the Command key serves the same function

On a tablet Touch and hold the link, then tap Open in Background

PC on their website. I know that I can open it up in a new tab with CTRL/Shift or right-click. However, that is wrong by design. Sorry for cherry picking, but such things stick out for me as a software dev :slight_smile:


Even easier, just middle click it, no need to use your other hand for anything really. If you do however, shift+middle click immediately takes you to that new tab too.


No offense, but I didn’t ask how I can open it up in a new tab. This is just my feedback - take it or leave it tbh. I did update my post to make that clear. :melting_face:


I might be misremembering, but I think before the recent update it worked like this. I know some things were changed to conform with ‘standard internet practices’ (or something along those lines) despite people being against it, such as removing the enter key as a way to advance through lessons.
Perhaps this is another such change? I have no idea.

I can’t believe I didn’t know this…

I just realized, that on the review page it does open in a new tab. That inconsistency makes no sense to me at all.

middle click

It only does this during the learn part of lessons. During the quiz part of lessons it behaves the same way as reviews, opening the page in a new tab. Kinda makes it less inconstant since the learn pages are bit of a different style of page than quiz or reviews. Maybe it’s still too confusing idk. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Here is more inconsistency for you: in reviews you can advance with enter but in lessons you can’t (anymore) … I was was like that before

Lemme middle click it on my notebook; or tablet. :clown_face:
