When targeting links with rel=noopener the opener should always be disowned. That means this: <a href='' target='foo'>Click me first</a> <a href='' target='foo' rel='noopener'>Click me second</a> will open two different windows. The same behavior is expected when using window.open('', 'foo', 'noopener').
