What about a "open link in new tab"-option. Oh, I really love tabbed browsing. So you can read through your emails, open each interesting link in a new tab and then go through them to read all of the interesting articles.

Why is it that some features have the "Open in new tab"-option and others don't ? I would suggest adding an "open in new tab"-option underneath every "open in new window"-menu-item. That's the best to give all users what they prefer: tabbed browsing or the old-style opening of new windows.

BTW, is there an option in Mozilla to open every new window in a tab instead ? I've seen this option in Galeon1 and it would be nice if Mozilla could also be configured that way somehow. Another nice feature of Galeon: a simple warning whether you want to close the browser-window when you have multiple tabs open. Multizilla saves and restores all tab-sessions by default, but such a warning-option would be very confenient. Does anyone know whether something like that can be configured for Mozilla ?
