The Browser War?

Not sure whether this can be controlled by any preferences setting or a registry key, but the two big browsers across the browser camps have a distinctly opposite behavior.

Situation: Have an hyperlink in a HTML Page that has target=_blank option set.

  1. Navigate the HTML Page in Microsoft Internet Explorer (till 7.0) and it opens a new window.
  2. Navigate the HTML Page in Mozilla FireFox and it opens a new tab.

Both the browsers give an option in the context menu for hyperlinks to open in new tab or new window. But why is the default behavior varying so much without letting the users to control the same?
