Netscape 7.1

OK ... I was 70% asleep, trying to catch up on stuff online after a big fancy dinner out with friends of my mom's, when Netscape popped up wanting to let me know I could update from 7.05 to 7.1 ... and I figured "what the heck".

Now, this is not a HUGE complaint, but WHY would they change the order of the right-click menus? Instead of having "open in new tab" being where it was in 7.05, it is now switched with "open in new window". I don't get it ... were MSIE users too confused by having a new tab open in the main Netscape window? I've been confused all day, looking for things that I thought would be on the tab bar, which are instead now in the taskbar in new windows.

As I said, it's not a big issue (I'll get used to clicking the second thing soon enough), but WTF were they thinking in making the change?
