Hi all--
  I've posted a new proposal to the WhatWG wiki to give web sites a way to
open a link in an unrelated browsing context.  These links would open in a
new window with no script connections back to the original site, which is
useful for web apps like Gmail that open user-contributed links.  Also,
this could allow multi-process browsers like Google Chrome to open the new
page in a separate process.

  Any feedback on the proposal is appreciated!
