I think you might want to try the "HoK" (hit a hint for KeySnail) extension,
available here


In fact, it might already be available by default (I think it was in my
installation) but you might not have key bindings set up for it (you
can check if it is available by M-x: hok)

There is a comment about this extension (and the also very neat Tanything
extension) in


I have configured HoK in my .keysnail.js so that the behavior of HoK is now
similar to what I had with conkeror (follow links in new buffers (or tabs)
or new windows, etc).

Caveat emptor: I only started playing with KeySnail a few hours ago, after
seeing Rasmus' comment this morning.
