    Or just middle-click/ctrl+click the refresh button.

    Or just hold CTRL while dragging the current tab to another place on the “tab-bar” (or whatever it’s called) so the small arrow (indicating the placement of a new tab) shows up…

    @David Watkins & clb92 – This simply presents a different option for those who would prefer a Context Menu based method. ~_^

    I use Tab Mix Plus and Tab Utilities Lite. TMP allows you to customize the entire context menu for tabs, as well as many more options.

    @James – I used to use Tab Mix Plus consistently at one time, but as time went on I found that I just did not need all the “extra punch” that it provided. :( It is good stuff though. ^_^

    Now what I mainly look for is minor tweak stuff here and there when I need something specific. ^_^

    Why not making it an in-build feature just as what Avant does.
    I don’t like to install so many add-ons in my browser.These add-ons will slow my browser even the whole system.The ways in Avant browser to duplicate tabs are more can just click the plus mark or right click.
