iPhone Safari - Open in new window

I love my iPhone, I really do (despite its lack of and instant messaging client, uh, the web based ones aren't the same).

My question: Is there a way to click on a link in safari in such a way to open that link in a new window while leaving the current window alone.

I browse forums by leaving the thread list in one window and opening threads that I want to read in other tabs/windows. Otherwise the multiple tabs that the iPhone supports has much less use for me.

I do the exact same with forums and such. Sadly I have not yet found a way to do this on the iPhone. I hope someone out there figures something out though because that would be really nice to have.

I would also really like this feature, but unfortunately I asked several employees at the apple store about it and none of them thought it was possible.

IT IS POSSIBLE

make a new bookmark, and make this the address:
javascriptfunction()%7Bvar%20a=document.getElementsByTagName('a');for(var%20i=0,j=a.length;i%3Cj;i ++)%7Ba%5Bi%5D.setAttribute('target','_blank');var%20img=document.createElement('img');img.setAttrib ute('class',%20'new-window');img.setAttribute('src','data:image/gif;base64,'+'R0lGODlhEAAMALMLAL66tBISEjExMdTQyBoaGjs7OyUlJWZmZgAAAMzMzP///////wAAAAAAAAAAAAAA'+'ACH5BAEAAAsALAAAAAAQAAwAAAQ/cMlZqr2Tps13yVJBjOT4gYairqohCTDMsu4iHHgwr7UA/LqdopZS'+'DBBIpGG5lBQH0GgtU9xNJ9XZ1cnsNicRADs=');img.setAttribute('style','width:16px!important;heig ht:12px!important;border:none!important;');a%5Bi%5D.appendChild(img);%7D%7D)();

then, when you want to open a link in a new tab/window, open bookmarks, press that one, and each link will now open in a new tab
only thing is to stop things opening in a new tab, you need to reload the page

I think it is indeed possible because it has happened to me by accident a couple times on sites I know not to have this action assigned to their links, but I have not been able to recreate this by choice.

Yes, it's possible. What you need is a bookmarklet named "Tabulate". Link is provided: http://www.tuaw.com/2007/12/06/tabul...nd-ipod-touch/

Is the sad face technically necessary?

or use tabulate, its a better option

I may have figured out a better way. If you touch and hold a link, a bubble displaying the URL appears. If you release right away, the bubble closes. But if you touch a bit longer, the bubble remains - lift your finger and tap near the bubble, and the link will open in a new window. It worked from macworld and tuaw, which *may* be mobile safari biased.

I am using an iTouch with fw 2.0.1.
