In the 'annotate' view, the first column contains for each source row a hyperlink to an associated changeset. The problem is that if javascript is enabled, the 'href' attribute gets removed, destroying the link. I would like to be able to open the linked page in a new browser tab. But that's currently not possible, because…

All mouse clicks are captured and used to trigger ajax-ish retrieval of the linked page and display it in an overlay, which finally contains a clickable link. Also, each associated row gets highlighted blue as a side effect, which is cpu-intensive. This makes it somewhat annoying.

A solution was proposed to me by 'coderanger_' on IRC.

instead of removing the href, we should capture and reject clicks on the <a> (the click handler is on the table cell itself, not the <a>)

Hopefully the handler would only catch LMB clicks, leaving MMB ('open in new tab') or at least RMB ('context menu') functionality intact.
