    This has always seemed to me like it was thought up as a really misguided SEO-type thing. Like your visitor really cares about staying on your website vs. following the information they need so you give them this little warning that says "Wait! You're about to leave the one you love! Stay!!" *rolling eyes* Seriously, who among your visitors is that thoughtful of your webpage's feelings.

    OK, I stand corrected!!

    I think all internal links should be buttons (or at least styled like buttons) unless of course their inline links in an article. External links should always be just text links.

    That's one step too far IMO, buttons should be reserved for functional links (such as the submission of data), not as a cross-linking method, it's unsemantic to use an input button in place of an anchor reference for stylistic reasons. Plus visitors might be scared clicking a button will signify something more than just "go here".

    ^ with the exception of main menu links, which popularly are styled button-y are are accepted by the general public.
