Internal browser issue(?)

Hello,
My browser of choice is Opera. It's my default internet browser. I've associated with it both HTML documents, URL shortcuts, HTTP(S)/FTP protocols. Yet, some links get open in new IE windows instead of Opera's ones...

For example, go to (inside internal browser):
http://tinyurl.com/y36grb
and click on any search result link... it will open in new IE (!) window regardless of your default browser (Opera/Firefox/Maxthon)...
I'm not sure, but I think it might be a problem of this embedded IE control...

It is the problem of any browser - they will always open links in themselves, regardless of the default browser settings. Offline Explorer embeds MS IE, so it opens all links in MS IE popup windows.

I'm not an exprert, but in applications (not competitive) like FeedDemon (http://www.newsgator.com/NGOLProduct.aspx?ProdID=FeedDemon) or WebResearch (http://www.macropool.com/en/download/webresearch/professional/index.html) that both use IE browser control, clicking on a link inside their internal browsers opens default system browser (i.e. Opera, in my case).
But, it's only an observation... I'm not pushing anyone...

Yes, I understand. A better idea would be to open such links in tabs.
