Beware of Opening Links in a New Window

Neil Turner lists the top five reasons not to force links to open in new windows in the SitePoint article Beware of Opening Links in a New Window.

Ironically, Silktide SiteScore, where I found the link to this article, uses target="_blank" to open the link in a new window. Maybe they forgot to read the article before linking to it ;-)
