Most Users Prefer Opening External Links in New Window

We have conducted a poll using ZoHo Creator
to find whether to Open in New Window or Same Window?.

Here is the result. Out of the 257 votes, 60% prefer opening in a New Window (153 votes). 22% (58 votes) prefer opening in the same window and 18% (46 votes) prefer selecting their own option using the right mouse click. And with FF2 and IE7, many prefer opening in a new Tab than a new browser window.

All external links will continue to open in new window. In the meantime, planning to write a JavaScript include file for handling these options. Will come back soon.
