Bug Description

There is no way currently to open a tab to the right of an existing tab. Pressing the "+" button always adds it at the end. It's desirable to be able to add next to the current tab. Chrome solves that by putting a context menu on the tab itself with "New Tab" option on it. We should consider the same.

UX Comment:

I agree that Bill's suggested subset is the minimum we'd require for this useful feature. I have added a page to the spec accordingly:

Could you provide some feedback about this? My vote is to basically support a subset of what Chrome displays on it's right click menu on tabs. I think the following are the most important:

New tab
Reload
Close tab
