This is not a public feature yet since all the bugs haven't been worked out. For instance it bypasses the popup-trap (if you use that option) and it may have other problems.
Is there a similar feature that will do this, but force target="_blank" links to simply open in the current
tab? What I'm trying to put a stop to is getting a new anything
(window or tab) in a situation where I expected the link to open in the current tab. Having these links open in a new tab instead of a new window is really not much better.
Ideally it would be possible to specify on a per-site basis whether to force target="_blank" links to open in the current tab. For the most part, that's how I want all of those to work, but on the off chance that a particular site actually has a legitimate reason for creating a new window in this way (i.e. target="_blank"), it would still be nice to be able to allow it for certain sites.
