    Can you pleeeaassseee add target="_blank" to the links, lol. It's a pet hate of mine!

    • Chris

      You can also right click and open in a new window, or ctrl+click, or use the middle mouse button if you're using a mouse ;)

      I tend to like my browser's back button (or just ⌘-[ ) and not having too many tabs open. I guess as these are clearly links to other sites they could be expected to open in a new window (as opposed to internal links or text links within a paragraph, for example), but Chris would have to indicate that somehow on the link itself.

    • Sandie

      Yeah, I have mentioned this to him before as well. Still have to right click to open a new tab!

        Are you on a Mac? Try cmd + 'click' (on Windows it's probably ctrl + 'click'). That's easier than opening the option with a right click.

        However, I don't agree with you guys to add target="_blank".

      I just created a simple bookmarklet.


    • Tara

      I agree! I think it is expected that external links will open in new tabs.

    How do you pick these sites. What things you consider in opting your listing?

    It has been really always been inspiring

    Internal links should never open in a new window – you could offer a lightbox icon – ONLY external links should open in a target="_blank".

    'can you make the button flash?' – no.

    Pick me, pick me!

    Your choices were mostly white minimal designs and/or with a large graphic. I'm seeing more and more of this. I do like the Eleventh Edition website.

    Funny that most of the comments are about clicking to a new page/tab. I'm always very intentional about this by habit and hold down "control" while clicking if I want to open a new tab. So whether you make the target _blank or not doesn't affect me :)
