Do not use target="_blank" on all links -- it confuses most users (especially those using unconventional browsing devices) and 'breaks' the back functionality. It is counterintuitive to close a window when you want to go back to the previous page. If a person wants to open the link in a new window, then they are also smart enough to do so themselves. If a link opens in a new window (either a popup or regular window) -- make sure to notify the user about this using some form of descriptive (and clearly visible) text, either before or as part of the link. Opening links in a new window should most likely be limited to external links.
