[poll] Links opening in new tab
#1
Default 
I just noticed that links in posts now seem to open in a new tab/window. In HTML-speak, the a tags have the attribute target="_blank". I don't know if this is desirable or not, but I find it a little annoying. I already have enough tabs, and if I wanted a new one I'd have middle-clicked the link.

I am not sure if this is something I can change directly or would need to ask Pleeb to do. But unless there's a technical reason it should be one way or the other, I think it should be whichever way most people want it to be.

What do people think? Feature or annoyance?

I tend to agree that if I wanted a new tab, I would have done so myself.
Besides, worst-case scenario, you have to press the back button.

I'm not going to actually vote myself, because it won't matter to me in a bit, and I'd hate to be part of taking it away, for the members who like it.

fun fact: click the link with the scroll wheel and it opens it in a new tab

Don't care enough to vote, if I want to open something in the same tab, I left click it. If I want to open it in a new tab, I middle click. I don't see a reason for them both to do the same thing.

Hold down the ctrl key when clicking on the link, or right click -> open link in new tab

Thanks, this makes my purely platonic research a whole lot easier.
