-Thanks

Opening infinitely many tabs

If I use google desktop search to find my telnet program putty.exe, right click on the link it gives and drag it to my quick-launch bar, and choose the option "Create shortcut here", AB starts to open row after full row of empty tabs.

I don't have a middle button. I'm on a two button + touchpad laptop. Is there a way I can emulate the middle button? For instance, if I could hover the mouse over a tab and press a key (space bar or something), that'd be cool.

Optimizing window space by using title bar

AB is good about optimizing use of window space. But I've noticed that the status bar and the title bar use up space but don't have much functionality. Can they be combined? Can the information in the status bar be put in the title bar? I can drag the status bar off the browser area of the screen an...

Double click tab to close

I'd like AB to 'wait' to see if I'm double clicking a tab to close it before it brings the window to the front. If I have a large pdf in a background window and I want to close that window by double clicking the tab, after the first click AB tries to bring the window to the front and then tries to c...

open link in background window

In the right-click menu on a link, can there be an option to open the link in a new -background- window? I know and use the keyboard shortcut but sometimes I only have one hand available.

Thanks!

I'd like to just click the file and have it open, without saving it somewhere.

Is that possible?

For .txt files, like this one:

http://br.endernet.org/~loner/basicnumb ... oEFNET.txt
