How things change: Firefox gets single-window mode

Recent builds of Firefox - starting with 1.5, I believe, although it's taken until Firefox 2 for it to work properly - have had the option of opening all links in new tabs, instead of new windows.

I've managed to find the what I believe is the first time this was suggested on Mozilla forums, from late 2002. Note how "asa" (Asa Dotzler, a main Firefox player) rubbishes the idea part-way down the post. This same argument was trotted out many times over the years, and only recently has Firefox moved to Opera's single-window model.

Yes, Opera, the browser Asa hates so much!
