 So far, when using Cyberduck, I leave my bookmarks drawer open all the
 time, and I keep trying to open a new server by either double-clicking or
 right-clicking on a bookmark - expecting to be able to open it in a new

 Thankfully, with the "Confirm disconnect" setting on, double-clicking will
 warn me before I accidentally disconnect a session this way. But trying to
 right-click is almost as intuitive an option, if not equally so, and works
 no better since there is not a contextual menu that appears.

 While opening a new window first is not a great pain, I have found so far
 that it is not an intuitive step when trying to open a new connection. -
 Since I can see the bookmark I want to open, I keep expecting to be able
 to just use it to open the new window.

 As a solution, I would definitely like to see a preference for "open
 bookmarks in same browser window" vs. "open in new browser window".
 (Obviously though, still opening it in the same window, despite the
 preference, if the current window hasn't been connected previously... such
 as just after a New Browser command or when opening the application
 initially. We don't want to spawn unnecessary windows, after all.)

 And additionally, if possible I would like to see a contextual menu item
 to open bookmarks in new windows.
