Chapter 11. Creating Links > Targeting Windows

11.5. Targeting Windows

The problem with the hypertext medium is that when a users click on an interesting link on your page, they might never come back. One currently popular solution to this problem is to make the target document display in a second browser window. In that way, your page is still readily available in the background.

This technique is not without controversy, however. Many users find the loss of control over their browsing experience annoying. Windows users might not even realize a new window has opened in front of their current window if they have their browsers maximized to full screen. So keep both the good and the bad in mind when deciding whether to use pop-up windows.
