Clicktag brain fart or idea?

Hey All,


I was looking over the specs for navigateToURL unless I'm missing something the default action is to open in a new window (ref)

"If you do not specify a value for this parameter, a new empty window is created. In the stand-alone player, you can either specify a new ("_blank") window or a named window. The other values don't apply."


Has anyone tried if emmitting the _blank parameter in clickTAG for adservices can fix the issue that some browsers have with pop-up blockers?


I don't have any banners currently in the making, so no real option to test myself. But why exactly do we have to specify "_blank" if this is in fact the default behaviour for the navigateToURLmethod? It may as the title states just be a brain fart on my side and me missing the obvious answer, so if any would care to enlighten me, that would be grand

    Leaving out the "_blank" parameter will not assist in bypassing pop-up blockers. If the click action is user initiated it should not be blocked.
