Gmail : Fast new windows

Now, popping out a window is much, much faster. No more "Loading..." progress bar.


There are a number of places you can pop up new windows in Gmail.

    • In chat, there's the little upward arrow in the title bar


    • When writing a message, hold the "Shift" key while you click on the Compose Mail, Reply, Reply All or Forward links and you'll get a new window for your new message
    • If you're reading an email and want to save it for later, you can click the "New window" link in the upper-right hand corner of the conversation view


Keep in mind that the popped out window does not outlive the closing of the original Gmail window, although Gmail Team is  working on a way to make that better. Unfortunately, They aren’t able to make this work in Internet Explorer, so to see the speed-up, you'll need to be using Mozilla Firefox, Apple's Safari, or Google Chrome.

I'd really like to know how this works, to use it to make other web apps benefit from this as well... could not find any pointers though. Who can help me out?
