target="_blank" is not opening external browser in IOS on phonegap 2.5.0

<a href="" target="_blank" rel="external" data-transition="fade">Google</a>

The code above (in phonegap 2.1.0) used to open a new browser window and navigate to Now since upgrading to phonegap 2.5.0 it takes over my app window and navigates to and since there's no way to get back I have to close the app to recover.

I have tried setting:

<access origin="*" browserOnly="true"/>


<preference name="stay-in-webview" value="false" />


Neither of these settings help.

After reading I would think it would work on IOS since all origins are whitelisted and my target="_blank".

Please help!
