I'm using Google Chrome Version 30.0.1599.10 dev. I was showing a friend how tags work when asking a question on Stack Overflow and typed in "php". When I clicked the "learn more" info link it did nothing. Is this a bug?

    Beta/dev versions of browsers are not supported. Works fine in Chrome 28. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/56161/… – Mat Aug 18 '13 at 12:48
  • even on meta stackoverflow (sorry it doesn't do 'nothing', it closes the tag dropdown element) – Ben Muircroft Aug 18 '13 at 12:50
  • Try with a supported browser. – Mat Aug 18 '13 at 12:52

  • There is target="_blank" on the link so most likely you have popup blocker installed that is blocking the link. Disable it and you'll have it working and opening in new tab. – Shadow The Dragon Wizard Aug 18 '13 at 12:54

    Reproduced in Chrome dev. Looks like it's a bug in Chrome, as I can fix the behaviour by doing something that should be a no-op. I'll poke at it a bit more to see if I can root out the cause, hopefully whatever's causing this won't make it into stable. – Tim Stone Aug 18 '13 at 13:10
  • @Tim so it isn't some built-in popup blocker that just blocks anything with "target" attribute? These days with more and more users being fanatic about popup windows, I won't be surprised with such a feature. – Shadow The Dragon Wizard Aug 18 '13 at 13:27

    @ShaWizDowArd Making a browser not respect the target attribute would be quite… dumb. – slhck Aug 18 '13 at 14:33

    @TimStone FYI: Chrome 30 is now stable, and this issue is still present: “Learn More” link on tags broken in latest Chrome stable – Joshua Dwire Oct 8 '13 at 14:57
