Unable to Open New Browser Tabs in Lightning

Problem

When an ActionGrid is imbedded in a VisualForce page and that page is viewed in Salesforce Lightning, clicking a hyperlink within the gird redirects the current page to a record rather than opening it a new tab.

Cause

Salesforce does not currently have functions available to allows users to open a new browser tab from a visual force page. Though functionality has been partially delivered in the Winter ’16 release, the functionality to open a link with OnClick JavaScript has not been added yet. 

Workaround

Please vote to have new functionality added to Lightning by visiting Salesforce Success Community page here.
