I’m fine with tabs in the title bar

Location bars in browsers need to be smart. Not just Awesome Bar™ smart – that’s great too, though hideous – but memory smart. I like tabs. I like the internet. I like hyperlinks! But sometimes I know a hyperlink is going to open a page that will resize my window or start playing music or initialize a movie. And sometimes I don’t want it to happen in a new tab right now but soon. Like after I’m done with ten other tabs. So copy link, open new tab, paste the url into the location bar, finish the ten other tabs, go back, hit enter, the page loads and something starts playing. Or whatever.

Now do that in Safari 4. Except when you are finished with the ten other tabs that new tab that is supposed to be waiting with the pre-filled location bar is sitting there with an empty location bar.

Dumb. Did all Safaris do that?
