Images should open in new tabs, not pop-outs

As the title implies, when you click on an embedded image to view its full resolution, instead of opening up in a new pop-up (or pop-out) window, it should open in a new tab. When I took my web development class, pop-outs where outlawed for opening links in our projects. Here is why: - Tabs are easily organized - Tabs keep everything in one window, reducing taskbar clutter and desktop clutter - Tabs reduce memory usage - When currently opening an image larger than your native resolution, one must use the middle mouse wheel to to move the image, limiting users without a mouse-wheel - Almost every (if not all) browser supports tabbed browsing - Pop-outs are archaic and annoying to deal with - Tabs are today's standard for opening links in web development TL;DR: Images on the forums should be opened in new tabs, which are easily organizable and manageable.

Thanks, we do know this. There's a lot to fix in the system and there's been and will be some changes in the maintenance near future =D. Images will be handled better later on.
