Remove focus from the address bar when opening link in new tab


  1. right click on a link and “open link in new tab”

Expected: The new tab has the focus in the page content, so that space works to scroll down
Obtained: The new tab has the focus in the address bar, as it would if it was a newly-opened tab with no content yet.
Comparison: Safari does this right - links have focus on content,

Problem : When you open a link in a new tab, to read, you have to tab out of the address bar first.

This is the inverse of the problem mentioned here


I feel very strongly about this as well. In every link that’s opened in a new tab, the address bar is unnecessarily highlighted. I hope this was not intentional.
