    One thing I absolutely hate is when someone posts an awesome link and it directs me away from BYC, especially cause most of those links are so darn cool and I get caught up in them and have to use my "back" button to get back to the BYC page I was originally viewing. Is it possible to make links, even BYC links, open in a new window/tab???

    If you right click on the link you will have the option to open in a new window, or open in a new tab. I know it's an extra step, but it can be done that way.

    That's usually what I do, I just thought it'd be helpful to suggest it....

    If you have a scroll wheel/middle button, you can click on the link with it, it'll open in a new window.
