    Can I piggyback off this and plead people to stop using pseudo links instead of proper <a> tags?

    I live on being able to control click/right-click to open in a new tab.

    When you bind your <div> or anything else with a event to simulate a link, it does the bare minimum which is updating the page URL when clicked, but it is missing the usability of an actual link.

      Guilty. I try to avoid this nowadays.

        So many big players do it, it's hard to blame anyone for it anymore.

        Looking at you Google.

          What? No wait! Just because everyone's doing it, doesn't mean we can't assign/take blame! ;)

          It starts and ends with us!

          I believe David should submit to 17 lashes of the whip. Tuesday next fortnight, noon, Central Park.
