New window does what by default?

File > New Window in IE creates a new window. Fine, I wanted it to, since I can't have a new tab until IE7...

However, why does it default to loading the current page again in the new window? If I make a new window, I don't want to duplicate it! In fact, I can't think of a single reason as to why I would want it to do this. If I wanted to navigate from this page in a new window, I'd fucking right-click on the goddamn link to get me there and open that in a few window.

Same question has been on my mind for a few years now. It still happens in IE7 so they probably have a reason... Can't figure out which one though. It's a waste of bandwidth, and a waste of time--since I usually have to wait for that page to be loaded until I can actually type something else in the address bar.

Ummm, no they probably don't have a reason other than, they're too bloated full of raging monopolistic fat to even care what the reason is or isn't.
They don't move in the direction of common sense, and now that mindset is permanently embedded within the bloatmonster.
Oh, it's so wonderful, now I get to navigate to documents and settings, username , applications, windows, whatthefuckever!!!
Oh wait, it's not that sub sub sub directory their great new programming monster hid everything in, its the other sub sub sub directory, that is very similar but not the same.. of did you check the common directory, where did that go ? How about some jakcassed S-1-5- god knows what insane bracketed shithole coded covered up hidden NSA/CIA made jealous directory ?
Oh, where did your OE store directory wind up this time ? Oh yeah, it "CAN'T EXPORT THE GIODDAMNED MAIL DIRECTORY - IT FAILED!!!!"
Oh, that's right, they have some psychotic FUD they're dealing with....
Dude, thanks for your blogsite. I'm down about 5 notches already on the years of rage built up - and I'm just a hardware/install/repair windows for home users guy. You programmers must need valium.

To each, their poison of preference. I tend to stick with that most common: enough alcohol to sedate a lion with its cock on fire, but I've certainly known those with a preference for valium.

Huh. I actually like that it loads up the current page. Well, not specifically the CURRENT page, but all the back and forward histories are also included. In other words, I want to go back but also keep the window I'm currently in. It's much easier to CTRL-N and press back (or hit the back button on my mouse) than to copy the link, open a new window, click the addres bar (or press f6) and then paste.
