When a user try to ask a question he/she will see an option like:
Questions with similar titles
If the user clicks on any suggested link, it's opening in the same window (at present).
For better user friendly nature, if we have an option to open in new tab/window, that will help user to see the question, without loosing any data he entered after clicking on suggested link on StackExchange.
An alternative way is, keep the
session by placing
back button or after user clicks on
back icon on browser.
Note: this Question was based on the Functional and Beginner/intermediate (technical) people who use Stack Exchange as a good source of finding right knowledge.
