Start New Discussion button problem

Start New Discussion button problem

Start New Discussion button is a javascript link. As such it can't be open in a new tab defeating the purpose of tabbed interface in all existing browsers. I want to be able to open new discussions in separate tabs or windows so I don't have to leave the current page.

Excuse me but what is there to consider? Links should not be inaccessible without Javascript!

The idea of making Intel web sites accessible from Itanium linux seems to have been dropped long ago. Itanium is marketed primarily as a back end machine, and tested primarily by remote VNC access, I suppose.

The web interface developers probably don't know how to work without javascript. I do wish they would document how to fulfill requirements which aren't supported by mainstream vendors such as Red Hat.

I try to get used to the inability to click on links when running linux. After all, I was around before the first browsers came out, and there have to be a few ways in which Microsoft is supported better than the alternatives.

I don't use Linux but I am still annoyed by javascript links.

It wouldn't be such a problem if the site was fast but since Intel website is so horrendously slow I try to avoid using Back/Forward browser buttons at all costs. I open links in a new tab and I obviously can't do it with javascript links.

I really, reallyhate itwhensomelousy web developer (incapable of permanentlyfixing

Both yesterday and today I got time-outs attempting to use the back button to move between forum sections on public internet. If this happens here, it must be worse elsewhere.

You are absolutely right, it is worse here --it takes at least 5 seconds between my click and the moment the new page actually begins to render itself. Mind you, I may have a slow connection (1.5Mbps) by your standards, but this is not about bandwidth but the latency -- Intel servers are too far away (not geographically but in number of hops) so the latency is awfull. That is why forced navigation is a Bad Thing.
