Dillo 2.0 Gets Tab Browsing

[ Thanks to Chris7mas for this link. ]

"As I already mentioned, the major feature of this release is tabbed browsing. I liked that Dillo uses the usual shortcuts for using it, like Ctrl + L for the address bar or Ctrl + T for opening a new tab. Don't expect full compatibility with Firefox shortcuts though. For closing tabs use the Ctrl + Q shortcut, or use the File -> Close menu option, although I think tabs really lack a button for closing them (and there's no reason for it not to be in there), doing it on the keyboard is slow when using it with a mouse.

"When you right-click on a link, a popup menu appears and the 'Open Link in New Tab' option is just under the mouse pointer. Considering that usually, when you right-click on a link you will want to open it in a new tab (or save link as...), this feature is pretty smart and fast compared to browsers where you have to move the mouse over this option."
