Misc Tips

28 Mar 2004

It's annoying when a link opens in a new window when you're used to tabs, so found this userContent.css snippet for Firefox:

/* Change cursor for links that open in new window */

:link[target="_blank"], :visited[target="_blank"],

:link[target="_new"], :visited[target="_new"] {

cursor: crosshair;


/* Change cursor for JavaScript links */

a[href^="javascript:"] {

cursor: move;


Change the cursor so you know when a new window opens and also indicates if a link is a javascript one which probably won't work if you try to open it in a tab.
