Open 3rd party website in new window/page

The strategy is very simple.

  • Get all think link (anchor tag) from the website.
  • Iterate through it and do some tweaks
  • We check if the anchor tag href is from our domain or not ?
    • If it is from our domain then we don’t do anything.
    • If domain is not from our domain then we update the target to _BLANK.
var allLink = document.getElementsByTagName('a');

var ourDomain = window.location.origin;

for(var i = 0 ; i < allLinks.length ; i++){
    var link = allLink[i];
        // Don't do anything when the link is from our own domain
        // add target to _BLANK, so that 3rd party link will be opened in new tab/windows
        allLink[i].target = "_BLANK";
