As the Title says, because of the way GS re-did the site's
(other articles are also affected)
are no longer right-clck'able and therefore one cannot for example go to your Newly Posted Reviews and open the individual Reviews one is interested in a new browsing tab.
This problem is due to the addition of all this eyecandy and of course, Flash.
Flash does not give you the normal hyperlinking right-click open in a new tab option.
A way to fix this would be to add/replace an HTML (non flash) hyperlink above the review that includes the game title just the way it is now.
Personally, I do (sorry, did; I no longer do) this on both GameSpot and IGN: I find the review I am interested in (sometimes 10 reviews at a time), open them in new tabs and put each game's review from the respective site next to one another. Either right away, or throughout the day I watch/read one review after another. I do not want to have to constantly hit the Back button on the Browser, risk loosing my place, or you posting new reviews that push the ones I am still interested in off the main page.
I have many many other complaints about how the site was redone and have encountered even more bugs, crashes and slowness. I understand that putting up a new site or redesigning is not easy, but please, before you add anymore features or eyecandy, please take a look at what needs fixed.
Tested on IE9, IE10, FF 23-24 and newest Chrome.
Who else feels this way regarding the inability to open stuff in new browser tabs via right-click?
I do 100%. That is driving me away most, as I don't want to have to do all my browsing through a single GS window. How could anyone think that was a good idea?
And for those not understanding, on the main page, if I saw a headline, I could right-click, open in new window. Now, that option doesn't work. Even on YouTube, you can click on the pic of the video to open in new window & have several windows open at a time. 85% of the time, I use one hand to browse the web with my mouse, so keyboard shortcuts are useless. I'm not willing to change my habits. It's easier to change websites, tbh.
How about not even being able to get anything to come up to change the avatar or the nonworking buttons on the Profile Settings page? Even if it takes a while for the avatar to change, how about letting us at least change it? As it stands right now, I still have a default avatar as the buttons do not work at all for me and a few others around here.
Exact same issue with IE9.
