@avl Thank you for the reply. What you suggested does reopen a tab without overwriting the currently selected tab. Yay!
It seems, though, that the tab menu doesn't group the closed tabs. It looks like one huge, disorganized list to me.
As per the Google example, one closed browser window had 23 tabs, another had 21, and another 9. They are so neatly organized, I am happyface! I have the option to restore each of those groups in a new window as per the listed groupings. I am happyface x2!
Does Opera have a similar feature? (Please oh please oh please be yes. >.>)
I did discover that I can use Speed Dial to save tab sessions in a manner similar to the Session Buddy web extension. Yay!
My others tabs issue is that I can't seem to figure out how to set a warning when I am closing a window with multiple tabs. I somehow accidentally did that once and was sadface because everything was gone.
So, like, really, I am a tabs fiend. Ahem.

It doesn't seem to be happening here. Check also your video and monitor settings.
The way the links open is strictly up to the link author. AFAIK, no browser can override that behavior.
At some point, the "rel" tag may also affect links as browsers adopt the recommended behavior. rel=external is supposed to open in a new tab or window.
