You cannot close *all* old tabs. One would always remain.

I always thought that the old behavior of "adding" tabs was annoying, because one often ended up with an enourmous amount of tabs; and why open new tabs when one is not done with the previous ones? The cost-benefit (on average) is that it is better to open a new window for new-added tabs than to deal with many-many tabs in one window per default.
