Opening links in external browser


In my app, I use the InAppBrowser plugin to open external links. However, in one specific case I would like the link to be opened using the native system browser instead.

In this case, I want to link to a Google Maps route URL.

When I remove the target attribute - the URL is opened within the app and there is no way to leave the external URL.

So my question is, is there a way to have the URL be opened with the native browser instead of the IAB?

  1. Open link:, ‘_system’);
  2. Install

I was so close, but missing the '_system' part. After adding that, it works. Thank you very much!
