Browser: no clear indication of a popup being opened in a new tab [released]

Often I click on links that open in a new tab by default (popups, target=blank), but there is no clear or obvious indicator that a new tab has been opened, which may lead to confusion when trying to navigate back.

The only indicator that appears is the little number of open tabs being incremented by one, but it happens so quickly that unless you're staring at it while you open the link, it often remains unnoticed.

Some simple text, such as "opening a new tab" at the top, or in the middle of the screen even, ought to be enough.

Or a quick, subtle animation to indicate that a new tab is being opened.

Yes, we have plan to add a transition effect to make it clearer that link is being opened in a new tab.
