It would be nice for the links in the links capsule to open in a new window. Especially since a lot of us are providing several links to other relevant content sites...so readers can stay with us or come back without needing to use the back button.
Although we allow it in the text capsule, in general we feel that forcing links to be opened in a new window is a bad idea. See this earlier discussion, as to why.
Many web browsers also allow a user to custom configure the response to links or pick how they would like a new link to be opened via options that open with "right clicking," i.e. open in a new tab, etc.
Seamonkey (formerly Mozilla) allows this. It also gives you the option when you create links in hubs to have the links open in new windows. It is very similar to Firefox.

I really liked the links capsule until I clicked on one to test it and figured out that it opened in the same window. Is it possible to make it an option to open a new window like when you are adding links within the...
