The web site doesn't open in a new window but it opens in a new tab. I don't think this has anything to do with CKEditor but rather with how Opera is handling newly opened links.

By default Opera is opening new pages in tabs.
_blank means always new tab.
_top current tab.

If you use Tools->Preferences->Advanced->Tabs->Additional tab options-> Open windows instead of tabs.
_blank means always new window.
_top current window.

For a minute there I thought that option "Reuse current tab" may have some impact on how newly opened pages are displayed but it doesn't seem to work, at not always.

I'm confirming the ticket just in case if anyone from CKSource team has different view on this. If not and this is Opera dependable please close this issue.

Confirmed. This is just the natural browser behavior. The editor is outputting the HTML properly (<a target="_blank">).
