Are you talking about highlighting the address on opening the new 
tab/window?  so you can just type over it right away?  That seems like a 
good idea.  As for breaking X selection, it seems like you need to choose a 
metaphor.  X selection an ctrl-c ctrl-v are never going to be entirely 
compatible.  Besides, if someone really wants to not break their x selection 
option then they can just change their open new setting so that a blank page 
is opened.  Also, people should be able to do ctrl-o to get an open dialog 
that can be used to open any vfs resource.  I don't know if that really 
works (nope I just tried it) but it should.  That would break the x 
selection on new page anyway because you need to focus the address for 
people who do want just type over it or use ctrl-v.
