What do you mean exactly? In XnView MP when double-clicking on an image it will open a tab for each image.

He means for the view tab to open but not be focussed like what Firefox and Chrome can do.

I take it gendalf means opening from Browser, correct?

I don't think the feature currently exists in Browser...But maybe it should with the use of holding Ctrl key :)

XnViewMP 0.53:
-Currently if I hold Ctrl key while pressing ENTER on an image file in Browser the nothing happens (no picture opens in view).
-Currently if I hold Ctrl key while double-clicking on an image file in Browser then the file opens as normal in view mode.

So support for holding a key such as 'Ctrl' for opening image files from Browser could be supported
