    I was just wondering why when you click on stories, events, Duolingo for schools, etc. why it opens a new tab. Just curious. Thanks in advance for answering my question!

    It could be your browser? Clicking on stories in my browser (Chrome) does not open it in a new window unless I hold down the link when it gives me several options.

    The try it out button for the stories on the Lab page has a target=_blank in the link, so it opens in a new tab (normally) but not in a new window as you said.. it makes sense to me that a sub domain opens in a new tab... (don't know if DL is consistent with this behaviour on the whole web page though)

    From my understanding, Labs links are separate from the main Duolingo website because they’re experimental. I’m not sure if that’s the sole reason why but it could be a reason.

      New window or new tab? If it's new window it might be your browser configuration... if it's new tab then it's about right.

      As for the reason... no idea. I go with DragonPolyglot's explanation.

        So sorry; I meant tab, but accidentally said window.
