Pop ups in new tabs?

I’ve been seeing guys do pop ups that open up in new tabs. I looked for the right script, but didn’t find anything. Does anyone know how to make this happen or which ppv network has this as an option? Thanks.

What do you mean in new tabs? Tabs in Firefox and IE?

I remember only LinksAdor used to support that option.

User Comment:
Yeah like the pop up opening up in new tabs in chrome/firefox/IE instead of a whole new window.

Doesn’t seem like LinksAdor is in business anymore.

User Comment:
Hmm , from what I read it’s impossible to do it programmatically on all browsers.

There are some tricks that work only on certain browsers but won’t work everywhere.

For firefox you could use :

HTML Code:
<a href="some url" target="_newtab">content of the anchor</a>

User Comment:
Setting target to _blank should open a new tab in recent versions of Firefox and Chrome. Doesn’t work that way on IE. AFAIK, the only acceptable options are _blank, _parent, _self, and _top. If anything else works it’s because of the way the individual browser is error handling an unrecognized attribute value.

Here’s some code you can test with in different browsers:

HTML Code:
<a href="" target="_blank">_blank</a>
<a href="" target="_parent">_parent</a>
<a href="" target="_self">_self</a>
<a href="" target="_top">_top</a>

In IE, there should be an option under Tabbed Browsing Settings to alter the behavior of the _blank attribute value so it opens in a new tab instead of a new window or the current window, but I doubt most people are going to have that turned on.
