Currently when browsing comments on slash topic
clicking any link opens it in same browser window. I
believe I am not the only one who finds it annoying.

Since links are processed dynamically it would be nice
that each user had the option to generate links in such
way that they open in a popup browser window

    I hate this feature request. This is one of the 2 classic examples of
    browser side functionality that shouldn't be duplicated within a web
    application. Every modern web browser can open a 'New Window' with a
    middle click, or some sort of context menu. I think forcing the link
    target is a cruel misuse of the server.
