How come no browser in the history of humanity has had an ‘open in this window’–button? Because they assume people don’t use
target="_blank"? They do.
And it’s obviously not to keep buttons out of the interface — when tabs came to browsers, they implemented ‘open in new tab’. So what is it?
(Yes, I know this can be achieved with user scripts, I just wonder about why it has never been built into the browser.)
