Even though there is option available to open links in a new browser window,many bloggers like to apply a default option to open the links in their posts on a new browser window. There can be many reason for that and the most common one is that they dont want their readers to leave their blog. Even though I am against to open the links in a new window by default, I am sharing the procedure to make a link in the blog post to open in a new window as somebody asked me to post this method.

To get a link to open in a new browser window, all you have to do is to add the target="_blank" attribute to your link tag, like shown in the example below:

<a href="http://www.shaanhaider.com/2010/08/30-awesome-twitter-jokes.html" target="_blank">30 Awesome Twitter Jokes</a>

So, after applying you will get a link like this to the page of my blog which I linked now as an example,

30 Awesome Twitter Jokes

By clicking on it, a new window with the linked page. Some browsers may open a new tab in the same window instead of opening a new window.
