Today discussion links on the right hand side of the homepage are now opening in the same window on my Mac. Usually they open in a new tab. I prefer that they open in the same window as it is easier to "swipe back" than close a new tab. @Freitasm why the change?

Also I notice that the links always open in the same window my iPad. Doesn't seem to be any consistency.

Links only open on a new window when using the auto-refresh, obviously to keep the frontpage intact.

When not using auto-refresh links open in same window.

On mobile devices we do not refresh the frontpage items.

There has been no change to this and it's been running for years.
