Whee :^P  Just what I want.   Thankfully apps like Konq can disallow
those kinds of things from happening.

To me, that's a browser bug.  If it's something I click that takes me
somewhere, I want to be able to middle-click it or even right-click it
and specificy precisely how I want to open the new content (e.g., new
tab, new window, save-as, etc.). :)
