Opera allows the user to click the middle mouse button to open a url in the background. I find this very useful and would like to see something similar in Awasu. A single middle-click to open the article in an external browser is nice and clean.
I read most of articles in opera, which works very well as I can 'Open in a new window' for articles that interest me as they appear. Then when I sit back with a coffee later on I flick through the articles and read them, one page at a time.
Since not everyone has the same tastes the middle button could have a range of functions which the user could select... again much as opera does.
