Details

Scenario:
The user has several Mozilla browser windows open.
The user wishes to load a URL in an alternate window; this is acheived by
right-clicking one's link and selecting "Open in New Window".
Betimes some users (if I am not so conspicuous) wish to load the URL in a window
that is already open.

Thus, "Open in New Window" might be a menu pointer, enabling the user to "Open
in Window [%d]", or indeed simply "Open in New Window".

Hmmmm, interesting ...
On IE and Netscape, it's may be done ny dragging the link to the window or if
the window is maximized then dragging it to the window's button in tah taskbar
(wait a few seconds until the window opens) and then drop it in tere. The last
method is very long and annoying so it would be nice to add that feature to a
mouse right click or even or even the ability to drag the link to the "open
windows" menu in the bottom.
