This has always been a feature that I've looked for in HN. It just adds a simple checkbox to the user's preferences page which allows them to decide whether or not they want links to open in new windows.

You're aware that you've used mis-matched whitespace correct?

Contrary to the rest of the code...

  • You've omitted curly braces
  • You're using a different quote style (single? the rest uses double)
