Open external links in background

If you use a RSS-program and click on a link, Brave will come in focus and the link will open. In fact a link in any third party software is handled the same - Brave takes focus and opens the link.

Brave should be able to open a link, in the background, without “stealing” focus since this is way of gathering data - you read through a lot of RSS-links (an example), you click on links and only after that you actually move over to the browser - reading a lot of links.

Hey Northwiz,

I absolutely agree with you. This is an heritage of Google Chrome and Chromium. Is it something that the Brave team can fix ?
It would mean a lot for a lot of people because it’s much more time consuming than seeing ads.

Thank you.
