To target=_blank or not


#1

From a support request mail:

When I was looking at one profile, I see this Couchsurfing icon below that connects to that person’s CS profile.

I would expect if I click on it to open in a separate window but it goes to couchsurfing website.

I tend to agree that opening these links in a new tab or window with target=_blank is actually a more expected behavior. Even if it’s not supposed to be like this according to web standards. What do you think?

Agree. I would expect everything that’s not trustroots.org (even ideas.trustroots.org or meta.trustroots.org) to open in a new tab
