Note: The following information applies only to WebCSD version 1 (legacy WebCSD).

WebCSD v1 is designed to launch each search in a new 'pop-up'. This approach offers two key advantages:

  • Your query is retained in the original window/tab so it can easily be modified, saved or run again.
  • You can compare multiple search results side-by-side.

You have some control over how your internet browser handles these pop-ups. Most modern tabbed browsers (including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera and Google Chrome) allow you to specify whether pop-ups should open in a new window or a new tab by default. We would recommend configuring your browser to open pop-ups in a new tab as this offers the best user experience in web applications such as WebCSD.​
