Utilising Internet Explorer Tabs for navigation in CRM

Just a quick post about how you can take advantage of the tabbing in Internet Explorer 7+ to improve user experience of Microsoft CRM.
I find that sometimes the popping of multiple windows when you click on a link can be confusing to a new user and cumbersome for certain type of users like people in support teams. A simple way of improving the experience I believe is to take advantage of tabbing in Internet Explorer so that each new window opens as a tab. This way a user can follow more clearly the order in which windows and records were openned and quickly navigate back to the start point.
So to do this:
1) Open Internet Explorer
2) Click Tools -> Internet Options
3) On the General Tab select Tabs Settings
4) Select the two highlighted settings
5) Click OK and Ok in Internet options to save the changes
6) All done select a link in CRM and a new tab should open rather than a window
