There really are “web pages” with no HTML at all, this page from Mathias Bynens as an example.

I believe there is a logic issue in the article, because of a wrong wording:

71.35% Percent of pages having neither noopener nor noreferrer attributes on target="_blank" links.

and then a statement that seems to contradict:

Yet 71.35% of pages contain links with target="_blank" , without noopener or noreferrer .

does it mean that 71% of pages use links with target blank? or does it mean that 71% of the said links don’t have noopener and noreferrer?

Hi @slk333. The logic seems consistent to me upon reading both sentences. Both are saying that 71% of pages have target=_blank links without the noopener/noreferrer attributes. If it’s still confusing, could you suggest an alternate way to phrase it to make it clearer?

I guess my confusion arised from the fact that it’s a compound percentage:

(1) % of pages with target=_blank (unknown % here)
(2) % of target=_blank that don’t have noopener/noreferrer (unknown % here as well)

(3) % of pages with at least ONE target=_blank with no noopener/noreferrer : 71%

I guess stats (1) and (2) are worthy as well but we only get a compound stats (3)
