From my comment #37 in bug 78037, I'd like to have an indication in the status bar when I hover over a link with target='_blank' that the link is going to open in a new window. Maybe, when the link is going to open in a new window, the status bar should say something like 'New window : http://link.com' instead of the plain 'http://link.com'. A more radical way will be to change the way the link appears in the text - but that is certainly not in the W3C standard :-) Of course to make that feature of any use we then need a way to force it to open in the same window. For example, as suggested in bug 78037, the first line of the menu obtained by right clicking on a link should change to 'Open in the same window' (default is 'Open in a new window') - I may fill a second bug on that one if yiu think it is a separate issue, but I beleieve that one without the other is useless...
