When you redirect a page to another, should the page reload as ?redirect=no ?

Description

Steps to reproduce:

  • Create a redirect.
  • Save the page.

Question:
When you save the page, should it show you the page you created (?redirect=no), or should it show you that the redirect works, by following the redirect to the other page?

Event Timeline

Currently it uses ?redirect=no, because otherwise using the page tabs (history, edit, etc.) would affect the redirect target page instead of the page you just saved.
