I'm talking about this board and how it doesn't open links in a new tab.
It's not just this board but all phpBB boards.
If I am not mistaken phpBB 2 did open all links in a new window (tabs had not been "invented" back then). Because having multiple windows open was a pita, as well as a drain on limited resources, the "best working practice" at the time was to open links in the same window. Now that tabs are around then the need is perhaps not so great and the current "best practice" is, I believe, to open links to the same site in the same tab, as it makes more sense for navigation, and to open external links in a new tab/window.
