SUGGESTION: Opening links in a new window

    I would like to suggest that when we click on a link within a hub, that it opens into a new window.

    I know this option is available by right clicking but I don't believe 'Joe Public' does this often. The advantage of opening into a second window, is that the original page is still active and the viewer can come back to it after reading the link.
    This allows us, the writers,  to spread applicable links throughout the page, not just at the end of our hub. It also encourages people to leave a comment as once they go to another page, they may be gone for good.

      Thanks for the suggestion, Blond Logic. Whether or not to open links in a new window or not is usually left to the preferences set by individuals in their browser. It's really a person choice and not one that most well designed web sites force on user.

      As such, I'm inclined to not make this change and let each user's web browser preferences make the choice.
