I don't know about "correct", but as a user I would personally prefer external links to open in the browser rather than within the PWA.

Agreed, but some sort of pop up to make sure you want to leave the app would be 👍

Yup, in fact the first thing I try to change in native mobile apps, if possible, is the behavior that opens links in "in-app" browsers.

I agree with that. I even when it opens in app I choose open in chrome option.

+1 for this

If I'm opening a specific app (like Slack), I want that app... no more.

If I want the browser, I will open it and browse other websites.

I agree. I like it better, when external links open in a browser.
