    Wow, that was hard with only 2 hands, but I tried it with just holding down the Orange + press my link and that worked! Thanks for the idea, will make surfing easier!

    Weird. The Org+link doesn't seem to work for me yet...though the Org+Sym+link works well (though really awkward). Nice tip.

    I haven't been able to get Orange + tap link to work (without holding down Sym also), but that would be nice if it did work. I agree that Orange + Sym + tap link is awkward and tough to do. It seems like Orange + tap link would work better and wouldn't cause any problems.

    I wish it was just finger on gesture area + click or something.

    If you were clicking a link posted in a thread here in the forums that's why it appeared to work with just the Orange key. Links are designed to open in new windows in these forums.

    Me, too. That would be ideal. Palm, how about adding this to 1.04 or a subsequent update?

    Yeah, they should have made it similar to copy and paste. Hold finger down on gesture area, click the link, open in new browser.

    I'd like to see where you click a link and it opens in the same page, but you hold a link and it give you a context menu with choices of how to open it.

    anyone try orange + shift + click link? Like with screen capture, you can either use orange + sym + p or orange + shift + p. I do the latter since you can press both with just your thumb.

    No dice. Org+Shift+link doesn't work... I'd like the finger on the gesture area + link option...that'd make surfing very "multitask-friendly".

    In another post, someone said to:

    in portrait mode, scroll all the way to the top
    click in the address bar
    click in an open space in the page

    And sym+click should work to open in new cards. I use shift+click actually, and doing the above steps has worked just fine.

    Hey everyone, orange + SPACEBAR + link will open any link in a new card. it's still not ideal but at least it's a little bit easier to use.
