The analogy with Internet browsers begs, right? Previously, you had to 
open a new page in a new window, and then implemented tabs. If you adopt 
some of the ways to navigate tabs from browsers, then users will not 
have to get used to it. And if you leave the opportunity to open 
resources in the window, then everyone will be able to choose what will 
be more convenient for him.
