Of course there is, you can either use a proxy, or if you really are on a
public machine - you can use a scripting solution yourself to remove
their scripting solutions (javascript:for
(i=0;i<document.links.length;i++) document.links[i].target='';void 0 )
for simple target, also remove onclick to avoid scripting ones.
