Why is Google’s default to open result links in a new window/ tab? [Update: They do this for *in China*]

... and let’s say Google does it because that’s what most people prefer, then why doesn’t Google permanently remember my account’s search setting that I don’t want them opened in a new window/ tab? (At least that seems to be the behavior I’m getting here.)

Update: It’s apparently’s default in China. When accessing the same from a US proxy, I don’t get this new-window behavior.
