Details

Investigate the difference between relying on hrefs vs dispatching an action to main to open the link. The issue being that data collection might fail.
For context the current TopStories implementation goes with option B while the Pocket Newtab version is just using hrefs.

[Tracking Requested - why for this release]:

tldr sync click event listeners are guaranteed to finish executing before browser navigation.

jdm: since the event can synchronously prevent navigation, by definition it is finished before the browser navigates away
jdm: any async operations started during the event have no such guarantee, however
