I find it extremely annoying that the site pops up new windows for everything linked in a post, and a host of other links, too. It’s not long after I start reading the HTF that I have six or more broswer windows open. On top of the fact that it’s annoying, there are legitimate reasons why it’s bad practice. If someone wants the page to open in a new window, they can specifically tell the browser to do so. It shouldn’t be forced upon us.
