'm simply interested in the correct answer to this scenario
Ok, sleep well, and tomorrow when you got the results, share your result with us.

I'm not interested in neverending arguments. I just want the truth in all cases.
I will accept it, if you will be right. But I also await to tell us, if I was right.
That's all I ask.

P.S.: If you do the test, click the same URL at least 2-3 times.
The question is not that one will not open new window. Of course both opens a new window for 1st click!
But the question is, that your suggested solution will open 1 new window, and all further clicks will be opened in the same window, no matter the link URL. See the following examples:
1)
<a href="http://www.site.com" target="newwin">
<a href="http://www.othersite.com" target="newwin">
After clicking the first example, the second example will be opened in same already opened new window!

2)
<a href="http://www.site.com" target="_blank">
<a href="http://www.othersite.com" target="_blank">
In this case if you click both links, 2 new windows will be opened, 1 for each click.

You can test them, I'm sure what I'm saying.
I hope now you see the difference.
