Hi all, looking for feedback.  Right now, if you are reading a review and click on one of the image links or the video link, it opens in the same window.  That means you must use the back button to return to the review.  Is that what you prefer or should it, when you click on one of those thumbnails, open the larger image or video file in a brand new window?

Your computer's settings could change some of this.  For example, on some clicking on the video file will open Windows Media Player to play it.  Firefox users getting new windows will, quite often, get new tabs instead.

Open a new window...for sure.
No need to trek backwards....just open a new window, see what it has to show you...then close it forever when you're done looking at it.

Same.  New window's handy.  Mainly best with images, video I'm not too worried about, but it just makes it a tad easier I suppose.

Yup, I like new windows; they're especially good when I'm using tabbed browsers like Firefox or Mozilla (or Opera)

I also use a browser with tabs, so I tend to open ALL links in a new tab.  If this works better with 'new window,' that'd be my vote, but I don't think it matters with tabs.

My guess was that others, like me, would want the larger versions and everything to open in a new window.  The poll only ran for today, a Sunday, but I doubt a change in the landslide will happen tomorrow.  I changed the movie review template and this is now live.

If anyone does not like the new option, feel free to vote and post it here.  I am not against going back to the old way - just certain this is what almost everyone prefers.
