> People that are in the habit of using the middle-click button to open pages in
> new tabs often get their brains trained to use that button on elements that
> aren't really middle-clickable. In general this is ok — but in the case of the
> "New Tab" tab, it should be supported.
> Recommendation:
> When middle-clicking the "New Tab" tab, open a new tab. :)
