I can do something similar to this already, using a shell script as a
viewer when pressing '.' or ',' to view a page.  My shell script allows
me to load the specified URL in another screen window, another xterm,
or either another browser.  Unfortunately, that has to be done every
time I load a new page if I want the benefit I'm talking about, because
I don't know ahead of time which pages I'll want to hold onto while I
go back to another page, and that isn't practical.  I also don't have
the benefit of the current history or list of visited links in that
other browser or window.

I've heard of tabs in those other browsers, but haven't used them.
Can you duplicate the current page in another tab so you can use the
current tab to go back to another page, or do you have to load the page
into another tab when you first visit that page?
