Foolestroupe -

Since it's the common belief that IE is the most archaic and obsolete browser around, my ability to set whether to "open in same Window," or "open in new Window," or "open in new tab" in IE7 (which even Microsoft says is 2 generations obsolete) would imply that all reasonably current browsers probably have that feature.

The USER can set which to do (but a website can "force an override").

I set to "open in same window" and either click with the mouse wheel to open in a new tab, or right click to choose which to do. No plugin required.

Some of our members have indicated they still may be using really old IE that does not support tabs. Win98 may not be able to run IE versions since tabs were available, and WinXP has no support for "optional updates" so those users may not have updated to the latest IE version (with tabs) that they could run.
