I've never seen a randomly popped up window from middle mouse button
click. I don't know what you're talking about. Netscape and Mozilla have
loaded pasted url in the already existing window.

95% of the public doesn't expect anything, because they haven't used any
browser long enough to expect anything. You know that. 95% of IE users
is not the correct target userbase.

And this I don't understand at all. How does putting any functionality
in middle mouse button suddenly enable that functionality for two button
mouse users? You don't seriously expect anyone to accept the argument
that clicking both buttons simultaneously is USABLE? People have trouble
understanding how to press shift/ctrl and a letter key simultaneously,
let alone clicking two mouse buttons at the same time.
