    Ads

    When I click on a banner ad, I leave the site..

    Ads should open in a new window, so I don't leave SG.

    Until it gets fixed, try hitting shift when you click on the ad. It should open in a new window.

    Most ads are now Javascript-based, and altering the code is against their policy... so I doubt I can do much about it without violating contracts. I prefer external links openinig in new windows as well...

    Isn't that usually a browser setting ? I know FF you can choose to have it open in a new tab/window.

    Some browsers can set in on the client side I suppose... But generally it is a server side html link tag setting:

    <a href=.....> vs. <a target="_blank" href=.....>
