Is there a way to specify a link target as a new tab in the existing browser window rather than a new window?

Hello Mark,

Using target="_blank" will tell the browser to use a new tab/window, depending on the user's browser configuration, and also depending on how they click on the link (middle click, ctrl+click, normal click).

So, the answer is you cannot specify to open a link in a new tab.

Note, that I found this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6296013/how-can-i-open-a-link-in-new-tab-and-not-new-window

But it's not recommended as it is not cross-browser.

Thank you!

Kind Regards,
