For those who pay attention to this sort of thing, all sites that I link to in posts from now on will no longer automatically open in a new window. This is partly due to reading this article that Bret linked to. If you care enough, shift-click on the links instead. =)

It amazes me (though it probably shouldn’t), that so many people have so much trouble with something simple, like the concept of having more than one browser window open at a time.
Then again, I suppose that as long as I have been doing IT support that nothing should surprise me anymore.
I never know what sites are going to open new windows with their links and what sites aren’t, so I just always shift-click anyway. I didn’t even know yours opened new windows before 🙂
Using IE, I nearly always drag any links I click into the address bar, out of habit, as new windows really annoy me.
