Howdy! This idea does sound to me a little tricky so it's not like I have my hopes even remotely up, but what do you think about making links that leave theppk.com open in a new tab? I'm always forgetting to open links in new tabs and then closing the tab when I'm done and then losing track of what (obviously very important) things I'm doing on the ppk!

Once someone told me that makes websites run slower.

Don't listen to me I know absolutely nothing about it really. That's just hearsay.

I have this horrible problem also. It keeps me awake at night sometimes.

From my very, very limited experience in having blogs/websites, I don't think this would be the case, it is just a bit of extra code to make the link open externally, but maybe on a website of this scale it would be different.

I know this doesn't solve the question but when I want to click a link while PPKing I just drag the link to a new window (I'm on a Mac), it is an extra step but then I don't lose track of my super important PPK browsing.

Auto-new tab would be great!
I use a Mac and always command-click on links, and then they auto-magically open in a new tab by themselves.

This is something that has bugged me for ages! It bothers me less on my Macbook, where I can just swipe with my fingers to make the page go back, but on a desktop it's a little more annoying. I'm also a person who has a million tabs up at any given time, though, so I obviously prefer opening links in new tabs!

I just always right click and open link in new tab.

You can set your preferences on your browser to always open links in new tabs. But that actually seems way more annoying than having links just open in the same tab. Right click that shizz.

I love the way that this site is set up vis a vis new tabs. It's efficient! It's economical! Reuse and recycle that tab!
