    have you guys ever considered changing your links so they open in a new window, instead of navigating away from heavytable.com? It’s kind of a pain from the reader’s point of view to click, be taken away, and then have to navigate back to get to the next story in the link roundup.

    Hey Leah,

    Thanks for the note! We have considered that, but our thought was that it’s fairly easy to right click and accomplish the same thing. The flip side is that if we put everything in a new window as a default, folks would have new windows fill their desktop pretty quickly. Either way has its advantages, and I think they both work.
