Tinderbox has not used wiki links since version 5 (see). All links seen in a note’s text ($Text) in the text tab are one of only two types:
text links - links from an anchor text in current note’s $Text to another note. Normally these point to another note. Occasionally, they may point to a text location within a note, but this is little seen.
web links - links from anchor text in the current note’s $Text to an external URL. This is normally to a web URL, but can point to a valid other source such a Bookends or DEVONthink data.
Note-to-note basic links are not seen in $Text but they will show in the links panel or in the view pane for some view types (Map, Timeline, Hyperbolic)
However, there is no method to force a clicked link to open in in a new tab (or text window.
Yes. There is extensive documentation of available shortcuts, most useful for learners may be the Reverse Look-up Map. You can ‘navigate’ forwards with Cmd+Return (⌘+↩) and ‘go back’, along the last used link with Cmd+’ (single straight quote, ⌘+
'). Both the Navigate and Go Back commands are easily found on the Note menu.
However, forwards navigation is not as simple as imagined unless a note has only one outbound link. The ‘Navigate’ command is bound to a note’s first outbound link (i.e. the first listed in the note’s Browse Links dialog). As such, this may not conform to expectation of using a web browser. Then again, being a hypertextual tool rather than a web app, web norms do not always map to non-Web use.
It sounds are though you might be one of those wanting a list of recently visited places. Up to the v6+ app re-design, there was a History list and there has been some discussion of to bringing it back.
