Try opening pages using with a different window name will open in a new browser window like a popup, OR open in a new tab, if the user has allowed the browser to do so.

Your code should be

var win ='', '_blank');
if (win) {
    //Browser allows the new tab to open
} else {
    //Browser has blocked it
    alert('Please allow popups for this website');

Or try this code to

<a href="url" target="_newtab">Anchor Text</a>

In javascript you can use'page.html','_newtab');
