    Was there any talk about this? I think that would be extremely useful. I hate having to leave one site to go to another page via link

    This is what happens in 3.0 beta 5 when you long-press a link. Open in New Page does exactly what you want.

    Oooh, pretty! I've been wanting that too. Thanks for the screenshot. Nice to see they included the option to copy.

    They really should include the page title in that. On this forum for example I'll sometimes just try clicking a link without bothering to zoom and the actual link is gibberish so I don't know what I've clicked.

    Have you tried tabulate? The way Apple implements it in 3.0 is better, but still, unless you have that, it's better than nothing.
