I was once a web developer, but sorry to say I've only just discovered this little issue with using target=_blank
Apparently, there is both a security and performance issue related to using this attribute in links as described in this article: https://medium.com/sedeo/how-to-fix-target-blank-a-security-and-performance-issue-in-web-pages-2118eba1ce2f
Obviously, the security issue is a concern, but I'm also thinking about the performance issue. On a Moodle site serving 30,000+ students, and I know many academics use the _blank attribute, this could be impacting our students' experience.
So my question is: does Moodle have any built in functionality for adding the rel=”noopener noreferrer” tags to mitigate this issue?
I did try googling this and the only "_blank" related post I could find was one from back in 2007 which was a different issue.
FYI, we are using Moodle 3.5.
