In the past, Samsung phones had an option for opening links in background. Extremely useful for a site like XDA. You could long press on a link, choose the "Open in Background" option, and the link would open in a new tab, but you wouldn't be switched to the new tab. This used to be enabled in the browser settings, under the advanced tab. I can't find the option. Why on earth they would remove it is a bit beyond my paygrade.

Is the option just hidden? Are there other hidden options? The Aboutebug command use to work in chrome? Are there similar commands/easter eggs for the stock browser or chrome?
