I have always been a right click person – I right click links and open them in a new page (tab) almost always. Not every one does this, in fact, the majority of people do not do this.
Some websites automatically open external links in a new tab, and others don’t. I’ve always had the mindset that all external links should open in a new tab.
Someone I know just launched a new website and anchor links don’t open in a new tab. I wondered about this as this person is a really savvy marketer.
So, what is your opinion on this? Yes, anyone can right click and open those links in a new tab but research shows that most folks don’t do that extra clicking on the right click menu. ALSO, some browsers don’t automatically have that option on the right click menu.
