Add option for links opened in New Tab to switch to that tab, and add Background Tab button


#1

Currently, in Brave on iOS, links that are opened in a new tab open in a “background” tab, and you must manually click on that tab to switch to it.

This should be changed - when you open a link in a new tab, that tab should automatically be switched to.

There should also be an option to not switch to the tab, and instead, open the link in a background tab. This way, we can choose whether we want to open the link immediately or in the background.

I commonly see this on other iOS browsers and it would be amazing if this functionality also came to Brave.

To summarize:

  • Change currently functionality so that the Open Link In New Tab button automatically switches to that tab
  • Add Open Link In Background Tab button, which has the functionality that the current button does

Thank you!

Bump… any thoughts on this?


#3

Why is this being ignored?


#4

Here to roll call this feature request. It would be great to have new tabs auto-focus. Or at least offer a setting on the behavior.
Giving a background tab option on a long press, as the OP says, would be a good addition as well

Sorry for the massive delay, thanks for bumping it again.

This behavior is scheduled to change in Brave iOS 1.7, we have a few small releases happening on 1.6.X, but will be improving this when we move to 1.7!

Thanks for the suggestion!

Whether a new tab is created by Cmd-click, right click “Open Link in New Tab”, or Cmd-T, it should (or have the option to) open and make the new tab “active” (brought to the front).

Is this feature scheduled to be added to desktop Brave?

I’m a bit confused about this forum. I see many references to Brave for iOS and such. Isn’t there separate forums for desktop, mobile, etc.? Or are we lumping all requests together here?

Thanks.

Hi @iXod,

What Brave version that you use? If 0.25.x, then you may want to check Preferences > Tabs. There’s an option to switch to the new tab immediately.

Already replied to your other thread.

Thanks
