I am using Firefox and a screen resolution of 800 x 600.  At a higher resolution I have great difficulty reading the smaller text.

 

The abstract pop-ups behave strangely in my browser at my preferred resolution: mostly, the top part is unreadable, and the text realigns itself every time I move the mouse.

 

I am using a Google search to match text so as to find a readable abstract - taking great care to pick the right paper.

I could proceed about 5 to 10 times faster but for this as I am a very fast reader.

I could cope better and proceed much faster if I could open the SkS abstract in a new Firefox tab.

Any thoughts on this, anyone?

How about I make the paper title a hyperlink where clicking the hyperlink opens up the abstract in a new tab. Sound ok?

John: that would suit me.  I suggest keeping the rest 'as is' for everyone who isn't a whinging pom like me.  ;-)

If you click on the paper title while rating papers, it opens up a new window with the paper title and abstract.
