While using the webview, I just navigate to a post then hit back to go to the timeline. On going back, however, the timeline reloads again and involves a somewhat annoying delay and re-rendering of the timeline page.
Is there a better way to manage this?
I think Reddit mobile view on the web actually manages this well by displaying an overlay for a post that seems to retain the timeline underneath.

There’s a little book icon that opens up the body of the post. You won’t be able to see comments though.
Thanks! Hadn’t used that before.

On my computer I just Ctrl+click or middle-click posts to open them in new tabs, having them open in an overlay would have been nice but I understand it causes accessibility issues so I don’t mind clicking with another button, I’m used to doing so on any other website so no hassle there.
On my smartphone I use jerboa which takes me back to where I was in the feed when I hit the “back” button
yea middle-click is the magic button I use since I was a kid
Hadn’t thought of the accessibility issues. Makes a lot of sense then.
The situation makes me think about whether browsers have stagnated for a while in their general interface. An ephemeral tab overlayed on its origin feels like something a browser should be taking care of.
I believe the
dialogelement has support in all the mainline browsers now, so again, if you want to load a page in an overlay, that is something browsers can do but Lemmy has to be written to do it that way.
I do it the same way. Sometimes I open a post in a new tab.
