Laptops and tablets and browsers, oh my!

I really like the look of the new EEE Transformer which gives you a tablet form factor, a laptop form factor, and 12-18 hours of battery, depending on whether the keyboard is plugged in.

I realised recently that the laptop isn't used for anything terribly complex - I read email on it, surf the web, watch videos in bed and that's about it. And a tablet would happily do all of that.

The only thing holding me back is that the laptop runs Firefox, and I like the customisation that that offers. I've tried Chrome, but the lack of options for even basic things* frustrates me too much.

Anyone played around much with different browsers on Firefox?

*I want URLs to open in a new tab, not overwrite the one I happen to be looking at. Is that too much to ask?
