Comment (by Ankit K Gupta):

 I think, Open the links in new tab is not good for point of user
 experience. If user want to open links in new tab then they have option to
 use Ctrl+click of keyboard.
 If we give target="_blank" it means we are forcing user to open the link
 in new tab even if he doesn't want.
 Also, it will increase the numbers of tabs in browser.
