Bunny pony request Am I the only bunny who keeps losing my MeCha connection when I click on a link? If I do that at MetaFilter or most sites, a new tab opens in my browser. If I do it on MetaChat, the link opens in MeCha's stead.

Merely a website consumer, not a computer science type here, but I wondered if maybe opening links in a new tab could be a special pony request?
I always wondered what the bunny was for Seriously, I didn't know you could make desktop shortcuts from those icons. From the time they came out, however many years ago until now, I thought they were just logos...

Bunny! OMarvelG! (yes this was really a thing, from the old days when Captain Marvel belonged to the long-since defunct Fawcett Comics... who he belongs to now nobody knows but if Marvel can make Rocket Raccoon a movie star, welll...)
