A question for you, dear readers

A bit of a debate is going on behind the scenes of the SB Nation blogs about whether links within posts should be set to prompt the opening of a new browser window (or tab, for those using up-to-date apps), or whether the existing window should be used.

Personally, I prefer the new window option, as I use Firefox or Chrome most of the time and this opens up a new tab that I can flip back and forth with easily, but other folks feel strongly the other way. So far, I use the "new window" option all the time when writing articles here, but I want to make sure I'm not alienating folks.

If you want to test, here's a link that opens a new window, and here's one that doesn't.

So I want to ask you, the users of the site. Which way do you prefer the links set up?
