use javascript to open a link in a new tab or window

im not sure why you would use this rather than using the html target="_blank" but it could be useful if you needed to open a new tab in a javascript function.

HTML

<button onclick="open_new_tab('https://kruxor.com');" class='btn btn-primary'>Open New Tab</button>

Javascript

function open_new_tab(url) {
	window.open(url, "_blank");
}

I believe that in order to better your knowledge base, it takes a lot of failing in order to succeed. I don't consider anything a failure as long as you get back up and you learn from your own mistakes.
