How To Open Links In New Window or Tab

How to open links in new windows or tabs?

Usually when one clicks on a link, the window will be directed to the link. However, if you want your blog to stay when your visitors do so, add this extra line to the <a> tag:

target="_new" or target="_blank"

Example:

<a href="http://simple-blogger-tips.blogspot.com" target="_blank">VISIT!</a>

In Firefox, both of these lines will open a new tab. It might differ depends on the web browser you're using.

Sorry, but could you be more precise about where I have to place that line? Maybe show me what is above and below it?

Thank you in advance.

@Silver MLM:
It depends on the browser you're using. Which one are you using?
