Sometimes it’s a small change that matters…

Firefox 3.6 is now available and others are going on about more striking features but it’s small change that I have noticed and it happens to be a good one too. Middle clicking on a link in tab used to open a new one at the right hand of the tab bar. Now, the new tab opens next to the one where the click was clicked and that’s a good thing if you are previewing blog posts. It was something that Internet Explorer already did so it’s good to see cross-fertilisation of useful features; yes, Microsoft can come up with good ones too from time to time. Though not likely to make major headlines, this is the type of thing that makes for better user experience and a few of them together can be more beneficial than some big shiny new feature. In life, it’s often the little things that make all the difference.
