    I recommend a feature in IE that allows a user to build a new window from an
    existing tab. Either:

    Right-click on a tab and offer "open in new window"
    Drag a tab out of the IE window

  2. IE8 has a new command called "Clone a tab" Ctrl-k

    IE7 users have always been able to do that with Alt-d,Alt-Enter.

    We can already copy a URL from the Address bar that way.

    cloning a tab in the same window hardly accomplishes what this would, and
    instead of (doubleclick to select addressbar text), ctrl+c, open new internet
    explorer window, select addressbar, ctrl+v.... wow....

    How about just drag a tab to somewhere off the window and it opens the tab
    in a new window.

    seems intuitive, simple, and useful.

    here's something - make sure the tab you want to open in a new window is
    active and just press Ctl-N......
