      Description

      Currently the click handlers in zone.js return false to prevent browsers from following the link. Sometimes this result in unexpected behavior in pages.

      The use-case where we have been hit by this is ajax links in a bootstrap dropdown:
      When a link option is clicked the dropdown does not close again - This is due to the click event being cancelled.

      The fix that we use locally; is to use event.preventDefault() and let the click event bubble.

      I think this should be the default behavior of the framework - as it has much smaller impact than swallowing the click event and makes the client side things more flexible.
