Don’t Force Links to Open in New Windows

Sven Lennartz has a good post at Smashing Magazine detailing why links shouldn’t be targeted to open in new windows. This is a big pet peeve of mine because it takes control away from the user. Insecure site owners force it on their users, thinking it will keep people on the site longer, but the correct way to build traffic isn’t to make leaving a hassle, it’s offering good content.
