Can you add a "links" tab so that we can list links to websites opening in a separate browser? There are many, many websites and articles that we need to reference but that will not open with the https-iFrame Websites Tab. If you can't do this, how do you suggest we post links (aside from within a buried conversation)?
I would like there to be an option within link setup/options that would allow to force "open links in default browser"
Hi, please consider the change the Idea name to something like "open links in external browser". I had the same issue but it was hard to find it by search.

Voted! Most websites I try to add as Tabs don't work, even when using https - it's an iframe issue. Support suggested that the issue is with those specific websites, but Microsoft's own Dev Center admits that "a lot of standard webpages don't allow themselves to be iframed", so if a site doesn't develop their own Tab then we're out of luck. If we had a Tab that aggregated a list of links with snippets (like we see if we add a link in Conversations), that would be a good workaround.

Agree with Chad W. on this one. Definitely, need a tab that auto aggregates links shared in a thread/channel. I often fine myself endlessly scrolling back to find a link that was shared/mentioned. This is a real time-waster unless I have the foresight to save/bookmark the message, but now that I started that practice my saved/bookmarked list is growing out control too. Many messaging/sms apps do this sort of aggregation, coulded be added to the files tab to be included with other shared content, but I think most people would find a separate tab useful.

Building on this, I'd like to see a tab that automatically aggregates web links shared in channel conversations, into one spot, similar to the files tab. So, not a separate tab to add links, necessarily, but that would be good also (thinking iOS extensions could allow for sharing of links directly to a web link function within a Team/channel)

Any update on this, I am getting an error message (www.WEBSITE.com refused to connect.) on many websites. Is there an alternative to this?

You could list you links in a OneNote page and add a Tab pointing to this OneNote
@Nils How do i do that in the Tab area of a Channel? Or are you suggesting to add that to something like a Wiki tab?
Just use goo.gl or bit.ly to "make them" https-sites. That worked for me.
