Openning articles in tabs

The little sidebar here indicates that Google Reader can be set to view entries in a tab, instead of in a new window.

I just spent 10 minutes looking in Google Reader's preferences for that setting. Grr!

I want that behavior from Google Reader, I don't want to force it for all sites I visit.

Hmmm, so you don't like to just have a TabPrefs extension handle that for you? I could not stand to have windows being opened, so pretty much everything is sent to new tabs for me. And hence I never bothered looking for that pref. Were you able to figure it out? I didn't see it.

I didn't know there was an extension that did what I wanted! Here's what I do: I hold down the "Ctrl" key when I click on links that I want to open in a new tab window. But I can't do that for Google Reader, because the "V" key is the key to open articles in their own window, and Ctrl+V means something else, clipboard paste. So, exactly which TabPrefs extension is the one that'll allow me to say, For Exactly* force links that would otherwise open in new windows to open in a new tab.

I use Tabbrowser Preferences, but it's a heavy handed solution since it won't do it on a per site basis. That probably wasn't clear from my post.
