That's normal browsing behavior.

Opening new windows is so... 1998. Are you sure you really want to do 
that? Maybe it's what you've gotten accustomed to, but some people 
(including myself) don't *want* a post link to open in a new window. 
It's jarring. If I want a new window or tab, I'll CMD-click, CTRL-click, 
SHIFT-click, middle-click, or whatever my preferred method happens to be.

IMHO. :)
