Attempting to load content with a window target of "_blank" or "_new" will result in the content being loaded in the main window along with some other flakey behavior (like the history being trashed.) From what I have seen, the method for opening the window doesn't seem to matter. I see the bug with anchors using the target argument, form submission using the target argument, and window.open calls. I will attach a HTML testcase.
