New window! *jeng jeng jeng* Well, we all know that it’s a headache sometimes having click a link and it just bursts opens a new window. I’m also having that habit of always making people go elsewhere when they click on my links. However, I’ve evolved from that habit into somewhat more rationale. I only use the target=”_blank” attribute if I’m posting 2 links in a single post. That way, my visitor can choose either one of the links to open first while the original links are in my post. Hope you got that.. :\
In terms of accessibility and usability, it’s definetely wrong to use new windows without giving a warning. An article at the SitePoint website put me back on track with some solutions, read about it HERE. I’ll start implementation of these practices now to stay on track for the better now onwards.
