Hotmail's web interface now apparently opens up new emails with javascript. That is, instead of having each subject a link from the inbox to a new URL, it now executes some fancy smancy javascript function to navigate.

What does this mean? It means, for some reason, I can't open the email up in tabs like I'm used to doing. Is that a big deal for IE users? Of course not; they don't have tabs.

Do I think MS is trying to punish Mozilla & MozDeriv users? I kinda doubt it, at least no worse than Tester1: "This breaks tabs in Moz" TestRunner1: "Don't care. Next?". But they sure as heck aren't worried about them one iota.
