One of our most common requests for improving the user interface of RSS Bandit has been to add an option so that all links clicked in the newspaper view result in tabs that are opened in the background instead of the new browser tabs stealing focus. This allows you to breeze through a newspaper view with a lot of items and click the links of the items you are interested without without having to go back and forth between the newspaper view and open browser tabs. Below is a screenshot of the new option

I've realized that it's been a long time since we shipped an RSS Bandit release and have started spending more evenings getting the code in ship shape. This evening I'll start work on the often requested feature that we utilize favicons in the tree view instead of the generic folder icon. My only question is whethere I should bother adding a flag to disable that behavior. Will mind having Dare's favicon.ico show up beside my feed instead of the boring folder icon enough to want to turn the feature off? Let me know what you think.
