New layout - buttons at top of page, no option to open in new window

the links at the top of the page appear to be images, so when I right click to open a new window all I can do is view image etc

Is there some way to open "learn" in a new window or tab while keeping the discussion tab open?

Thanks

yeah I just don't get it why they keep making the site worse and worse?

Before it used to be an image with a hyperlink - you know, that stuff the web was invented and built around.

But with making it that ugly they also decided to go the "modern" route and make it an image with an event listener that executes a piece of javascript code that will then eventually go to the page ... and you can't open that in a new tab anymore. But, you need to understand. The designer decided on how you are supposed to use the website. How do you DARE to want to use it any other way?

By the way, why was the logo changed to three circles?

I think they're trying to make the website, tablet and app versions all look the same.

Which is a great idea to the person who thinks a piano, accordion and guitar all work the same way.

Yes, open a new tab in your browser and type:
www.duolingo.com

This is working in the Firefox browser app (v66.0.2) on my phone (Android v7.1.1)

This has been fixed now, by the way.

Right-clicking, at least on my Windows laptop in Chrome, is now bringing up a menu that includes "Open link in new tab."
