Personally I get irritated when I click a link on halfbakery and go into some tangent, and then have to click the back button a dozen times. I know that with merely a few lines of the HTML already used in the links, a new window would open.

       Not a few lines of HTML. One phrase in the anchor tag "target=_new" will do it. I bet you could do that by default in userContent.css (for Firefox).

       Or you could right-click, New Window/Tab.

       Not having a million windows open when I surf halfbakery is consistent with its minimalist charm.

       Yeah, I have enough open at work as it is!

       Why should a website impose the new window on you, when the choice to have a new window or not is currently in the hands of the user (i.e. by clicking or right- clicking and choosing "Open in new window/tab")?

       When you're on a mac like me, right- clicking is a hassle.

       Baked (at least in real systems) by clicking the scroll wheel / middle button.

       or just buy a $5 mouse w/ 3 buttons. alternatively, if you're on a laptop, you can change the system preferences to make a tap w/ 2 fingers on the trackpad a right click.   

       a third option, the new version of safari has a feature called snapback where if you click the little orange arrow in the URL bar, it takes you back to the first page before you started wildly clicking links.
