Feature Request: Opening links in a new tab

I was wondering if it is ever planned to have the option to open links in another browser tab with the GitHub markdown.

For example <a href="www.google.com" target="_blank">My Link</a> would open another tab in your browser and load the google page, but currently, GitHub would just change the current page to go to the google page.


Hi @dr-nyt I personally would love this feature also!

We’re always working to improve GitHub, and we consider every suggestion we receive, so perhaps you’d like to submit a feature request through our official product feedback form so that our product team can see exactly how you’d like GitHub to work?

You can also keep an eye on our Roadmap and Blog for updates on future features.

I too had the same problem, it didn’t work even if I used target="_blank"
