Is there a version of safari which runs on Windows? If so, does it play nice
with Jaws?

What? Can old dogs learn new tricks?
No, you are not too much of an old dog Jim. You are right, tabs makes
browsing many pages simultaneously a breeze especially if you have a fast
machine. I've read that with Safari one can have the default link action be
to open in a new tab and not a new window -- is the same possible for FF? I
always forget those shortcuts then fall back to the context menu button and
select Open in New Tab, but I know there's a faster way for this.

I know that popping open new browser windows is against accessibility
guidelines, but I'm beginning to re-think my aversion to doing that, partly
because I like the new way browsers open windows. I like tabs. I also like
that when I return to the previous tab, I'm exactly where I left off
reading. Recently, with more dynamic pages, it has become more and more
unreliable to use the back button to get back to where I was. I'm even
experimenting with opening links in a separate browser window on purpose.
I'd still like to know, though, if a link is about to open in a separate
window, even if it's for informational reasons. JAWS does a good job,
though, of telling me that a new tab has opened.
