    Question WDD:

    Why don’t links in these posts open in a new window? I scroll through the whole list and click all of the articles I want to read, then go back one by one and read them. Many times I forget to right-click and open them in a new window, make a : face, and wonder “why dont these links open in a new window automatically?” Thanks!

      Because most readers prefer them not to. Personally I agree that opening in a new window is preferable, but we’re in a minority.

        Interesting. I always considered it best practice to open in a new window when linking away from your website. What do readers know? ;)
