So good and so basic, should be part of core.

Keeps visitors from accidentally abandoning our sites, offers cleaner code than target=_blank, and is a lot more convenient than adding that to every link. Works every time, and is on my short list.

So easy, so necessary
By , for WP 3.6

If you include links to other sites in your posts, you risk losing readers if you don't force those links to open in new tabs/windows. We've always been diligent about manually selecting the option to open a link in a new window, but it's an easy thing to forget. This plugin eliminates those errors and keeps your site open on your readers' browsers while still allowing them to check out the links you feature.

Love Simplicity
By , for WP 3.5.2

This one works and is simple. Only your external links (in this case those that go to another domain-some plugins of this type don't recognize that fact) open in a new window including the website attached to your commentors (reply) name. And it is very, very simple.

This plugin saved me hours of hunting through shortcode config PHP files to force a target=_blank piece. Bravo!
