I was thinking of tabs that receive focus upon creation, and still think these should open right next to their parents. I can see your point if you're going to have links open in background tabs, and this could have the curent behavior, but it can be solved by having the parent keep track of its children. Tab 5 creates children 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, and so on, when opening in background tabs. 5.2 creates 5.2.1, 5.2.2, etc. Children leave their parents when dragged outside the group. Children could follow parents, that are dragged, by using a modifier. Other tabs dropped in a group of children of another tab can just float there without being treated as children. Some functions that could now be implemented are: "Close children", "collect children" (pushing all "invaders" below), "hide children" (making a stack), and "go to parent".

Finally, closing a tab should bring you back to the previously active tab.

Sure, that's possible, but as you said, you get one more window.
