Hi.

Working with Firefox 1.0 and MS Internet Explorer 5.5 on MS Windows at home, Google started to open a new windows when clicking a link within results.

Google inserts this piece of code:
---------------------//---------------------------
<script><!--
if (window.name == 'nw') { window.name = '';}
//-->
</script>
...
<a href="http://www.foo.com/" target="nw"><b>Foo</b>
---------------------//------------------------

It doesn't happen when working with Firefox 1.0 on Linux FC2 at work.

Any similar experience?

I haven't seen it on firefox or ie with windows. Either they are testing it very sporadically or you need to run your spyware checker thingy(s).

Try shift-click.

If you are using Firefox, just press the middle button to open a link in a new tab.

the other replies brings up that it might be your windows settings.

I know windows has some pretty stuff for handicapped people.

By the way the shift and click demands 2 hands. Programming the wheelclick as a doubleclick is much easier ;)

how about using the google preferences to set this up
[google.com...] bottom of the page, tick the box, Save Preferences(cookie) and you're off

mmm... thank you very much, but I'm sure I never checked that option at my preferences.
