Interesting article. I hadn't realised there were security implications for using target="_blank", I remember it went out of favour during the XHTML days, but seemed to have crept back in since then, but it's useful to know about the rel="noopener" addition.

By the way, from the reading I've done it doesn't appear to have any particular impact on SEO either, but I'm still looking into that one.
