Internet Explorer has the desired behavior. When I am waiting for a page to load, it's nice to load a new window with the same page that I was looking at. E.g. I'm at slashdot and I click on an external link, while I am waiting for that to respond I can open a new window that autmatically goes to the page I was looking at and I can continure browsing the other articles. This ought to be very easy to do, hope to see it by 1.0! :) (maybe this should be a pref?)
Two suggestions for workarounds: First, you can get exactly this behavior if you change your home page to "last page visited" in preferences Second, Instead of clicking on a link, and then trying to open a new browser window to view what you where already looking ata, just right-click on the link and pick "open in new window". That the other page loads in a separate window, and you can still continue reading the current page in the current browser window.
Open the link in a new window instead. You can do this fast by clicking with the middle-button on the link.
