About opening of links in new tabs or browser windows (Features)

I don't like this feature. There are a lot of arguments against opening a new tab/window, since several years. For that reason, I don't understand the intention behind this feature. I don't see any benefit in opening a new tab/window.

The ridiculous arguments against opening a new tab/window are mainly related to pop-up malware... and of course the extreme vulnerability of the Windows operating system (which only getting worse by the day IMHO).

There are huge benefits for opening a new tab/window for lots of users. I personally open links in my little forum always with the right mouse button in a new tab. always.

But then again - I don't use Windows, and my browser is "enough intelligent" to disallow pop-up windows... so where is the argument? I simply open a link that I fully trust in a new tab - while staying in the forum at the same time.
