I think using a right-handed mouse left-handed and the other way around is not a case to optimize for, the user will notice at the first or second click and will adapt it or just change the settings. Btw, With gnome-terminal and epiphany this never bugged my in any way - because I never used the context menu there as there are not much functionality I access this way. In nautilus I expected tabs be more like folders and the "location button bar" (no idea how you call it). I expected to get the same menu (which I didn't buts that is another story) and also first time noticed right clicking is focusing the tab. The right-click: I expect nothing to open or change if I right click something but show me a menu what I could do but don't do anything so far. Similar to right clicking the "location button list" in nautilus, a link in epiphany or a window in the window-list. Counter-Examples: Right clicking the title bar of a window focuses the window and right clicking a folder in nautilus selects it. Its a bit like... is tab to tab-content more like a) window to window-list-entry or b) window to window-title-bar ;) While it "feels wrong" for me that the tab is focused as I think of tabs as the little brother of the window list or similar to nautilus "location button list" I think we should look at the use cases of the context menu to form an opinion. If there would be functions in nautilus like "paste into folder" or "properties" I would expect them to not focus the tab. Would you? Would you not? Right now there are just two functions in the context menu everywhere: * move left / right * close tab * Moving a window with left mouse focuses the window and it "feels right" to me and I guess to most people it does. * Closing a tab should not change the focus I got right now (like clicking the X on the tab itself). What other use-cases of the context menu of tabs will show up? Should come up in future? Florian PS Note (and maybe a bug?) on closing a tab with right mouse - in nautilus it focuses the clicked tab, when you right click and if you click "close" it goes back to the tab you came from - in epiphany it focuses the clicked tab and sometimes goes back to the tab you came from after clicking "close". Not sure what the logic behind, maybe just a bug. PSS Allan, you filled/found any bug report about it?
