No "Open In New Tab" option in IE7 - Disable the Google Toolbar

If you're pained because right-clicking on a link in IE7 doesn't include an option for "Open in New Tab," you're likely running the Google Toolbar. Disable the Google Toolbar by right-clicking on the IE Toolbar and deselecting it.

You can also try installing the Google Toolbar T4 Beta; that worked for me.

The IE team must have missed that and forgotten to copy it from Firefox :)

well, they haven't forgot to misplace refresh and stop. i hope it's because they work hard on css compliance. :)

Why would you right click? Best feature in firefox and IE7 is clicking the mousewheel opens a link in a new tab. That one feature moved me to FireFox till IE7 gets a little more stable.
