How to open a link in a new window in javascript and increase counter only on button click?

I am trying to open a link at a specific counter value. For example if the counter value is multiple of 10 then link opens up automatically in new tab and that counter increases only on button click. I am doing this in JavaScript.

Any help will be highly appreciated. Thank you so much in advance.

My code is -

$('button.counter').click(function myFunction() {
var count = 1;

while (count <= 60) {
if (count == 10) {"");
count = count + 1;

body {
background-color: #e8e8e8;

<script src=""></script>
<!DOCTYPE html>

<title>Test Code</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css">


<script src="javascript.js"></script>
<button class="counter" onClick="myFunction()">Click</button>

You should define the counter variable outside the function call by click event. In you code, the counter will be initial to 1 each time you click.

And incase you want to check the counter value is multiple of 10, you should change the condition (count%10) == 0

var count = 1;
$('button.counter').click(function myFunction() 
    if((count%10 == 0) && (count < 60)) {"");
    } else {
       document.getElementById("text").innerHTML = count;
    count = count + 1;
