On mobile, it doesn’t make sense to have a home button if you don’t use the features of a home page. It also doesn’t make sense for it to open the home page in the current tab.
I would love to have the option to have to either swap the Home button for a New Tab button (why should it take two taps?!?), or add an option to, when tapping the Home icon, to open it in a new tab.
After installing, navigating to one site, then trying to quickly open a new tab, looking up what quick new tab setting I missed was the next thing I immediately did. To my disappointment, I guess opening a new tab really does require two clicks. Very odd and unwelcome, especially on mobile. Please pay attention to this issue.
