    I check other users' profiles quite frequently. Mostly because there are a lot of of 13 year olds around who won't admit that they have no idea what they're talking about. Personally, I'd prefer the user profile to open in a new window. I don't know if this is possible or even a popular idea, but I'd like to get some feedback on it.

    If you use a two-button mouse, you can right click the username and select "Open link in new window."

    As a general principle I don't like things that open in new windows....it's easier to open stuff in a new tab or just the same window. The back button is easy enough to use.

    Just use Firefox, Shiira or any other decent browser that has built in the ability to force those nasty new window links into a new tab instead... :cool:
