I mean, there are special names to use in the
target to do things such as open a new window (
_blank), open in a parent window (
_parent), etc. IE and Mozilla also provide the
_search value to open links in the search sidebar. Wouldn’t it make sense for Mozilla to support a value like
_tab to open a link in a new tab? That way, it would fail gracefully in non-supporting browsers by opening a new window instead.
