    So, I like reading reviews here, as well as the forums and the news, but there is one thing which seems to annoy me a little bit more every time I read a new review.

    Take for example this: the CM Storm Trooper review here on TPU.

    You see a nice page full of pics, but every pic you click opens in a new window.

    In News, like this one, the images open in what I call a "Gallery view".

    I would like to see this Gallery view implemented in reviews and articles, because:
    • It navigates more smoothly than new tabs/windows.
    • It will create more consistency across all sections of TPU.
    • It looks more professional (imho).
    • It currently looks like the News section is getting all the attention and the other sections aren't.

    I, too, would like to see all images open in the navigatable image overlay.

    It seems inconsistent at times. When I went to the news article he linked, I clicked on the first picture and it opened in a new tab but when I clicked on the table it opened the gallery view.
    When I reloaded the page it all worked fine. Maybe I clicked on the image before the page was fully loaded or something?
