Three reasons to do this:

  • Users already have control over what they want, by choosing between middle vs left click. This takes that control away.
  • If #2319 (emacs/vim keybings) gets done, then according to Chrome's policy the window would need to stay in App mode to be able to receive otherwise browser-reserved keys like C-n and C-p. target="_blank" pops the tab out of App mode, which is inconvenient.
  • There's no state on the dashboard page that a user might destroy by navigating away.

A consequent change to this is that "File > Close" and "File > Close and halt" should likely return a user to the dashboard.
