    Default Where do I make (humble) suggestion for the site?
    I can't seem to find the right forum for this :/

    But anyways, here's my suggestion - is it ok to put an extra icon next to forum headings (in the forums main page http://modmyi.com/forums/) and next to each thread headings (in the individual forums) that once you click on it it opens the forum/thread as a new page?

    As I (and I'm sure a lot of other people) browse MMI using the iPhone, it'll be great to open the forums/threads as a new page so that we don't have to keep pressing "back" (which then loads the previous page all over again) after viewing a certain forum/thread. Anyone else thinks this is a good idea?

    I use CoolIris extension in Firefox.

    It's great for reading forums.

    There should be a setting in Preferences> for the option to open new pages in a different tab or new window. check it out. I use Safari and it requires you to press command when clicking.

    Having the option to open new links in the background would be a KILLER iPhone feature. It would be awesome for individual sites like MMi to code in workaround links - but I'd love to see that feature added by Apple so it wouldn't be necessary.
    PLEASE click everyone's "Thanks" buttons...they are begging for it.

    Thanks PF

    Here's an example of a forum that uses that function
    http://www.discuss.com.hk/forumdisplay.php?fid=344
    If you click on the paper-looking icons on the left hand side of the thread headings, it opens the thread in a new page. Very handy.

    Thanks again!
