What does target="_blank" mean?

Here isthe link:< a href=“https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opuntia” target="_blank">Prickly Pear

=hyperlink reference
Anybody can tell me the functions(or the meaning) of target="_blank" mean?

Thank you!!

In the FRAMES environment there can be several frames of reference on the screen, each with their own HTML document tree. We won’t get into that now, but target refers to the new window object reference, and, ="_blank" refers to a new window. It’s short for about:blank in your browser as the place to draw the new window from, then requests the resource from the host server and populates that window.


OKay, thanks for answering.
