The site used to open external links (links to pages that weren't on ePlaya) in a new window by default. After one of the upgrades, it stopped doing that. That's because the forcing to new window code was deprecated by the W3C, and as I'd mentioned the general consensus was that good design gives users choice, not takes it away. There are a number of articles on the subject out there, this one comes to mind. The change seemed odd at first, but after doing some reading on the subject and talking it over with UX designers and paying a bit more attention to my own web usage, I agree with their thinking.
