Useful tip for comparing items on different web sites

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

When you are using a search engine like Google, to search for an item – say, brown leather gloves – you type “brown leather gloves” into the search box, and then you get a whole list of possibilities.  A useful tip for comparing the different results is to open them each in new tabs (or pages) in the browser, then you can move from one to the next and back again by clicking on the tabs at the top of the page.

To do this, when you click on a link, instead of using the left button of the mouse, click with the centre wheel – this will open the link in a new tab (or page).  Click on several links – as many as you like – then left click as usual on the tabs at the top of the page.

If you aren’t using a mouse, or the centre wheel click doesn’t work, you can right click and choose “Open link in new tab” .

If you are using a touch screen device, press and hold the link, and then choose “open in new tab”
