How to open link in a new tab in React

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to open the link in a new tab in React app.

Normally, we create a link in React using the <Link> component.

<Link to="/about">About</Link>

If we click on the above link, it will open an About page in the same tab.

To open the link in a new tab, we can use the <a> element by passing a target attribute with a value _blank.

Here is an example:

<a href="https://twitter.com/saigowthamr/" target="_blank">Twitter</a>

Note: If you are using target=_blank, your page performance may suffer to avoid that you can use rel="noreferrer noopener".

<a href="https://twitter.com/saigowthamr/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">
   Twitter
</a>

In programmatic navigation, we can use the window.open() method to open the link in a new tab.

Example:

import React from "react";

function App() {
  const handleClick = () => {
    window.open("http://twitter.com/saigowthamr");
  };

  return (
    <div>
      <h2>App</h2>
      <button onClick={handleClick}>Twitter</button>
    </div>
  );
}

export default App;

Note: This above tutorial only concentrates on how to open the external links in a new tab.

Here is how you can open the internal links in a new tab in React:

<Link to="/about" target="_blank">About</Link>
