This week at PUG: New window for external links

Dear PUG,

I just joined a web development team and my first task is to continue the website project of the original designer who left for Singapore. I’ve noticed that with this website, all external links launches a new window. When I asked our team leader about this, he said that is their convention. Is it normal to launch new windows for external links?
