Move open-link-confirmation for Kicksecure?

I understand why https://github.com/Whonix/open-link-confirmation would be a good idea for Whonix/Tor Browser but how would that be helpfull from a straight security perspective (SecBrowser)?

Good question.

Malformed links might exploit the browser or trigger other unwanted features.

Not sure the attack surface of open-link-confirmation would be lower than the attack surface by browsers.

Open for comments.

Sometimes a user might accidentally click a link in a PDF that he doesn;t intend to and it might take him to a harmful site. The confirmation dialog makes sure this doesn’t happen.
