Currently, if a page decides to open link in a new tab, when a tab is opened, address bar doesn't have an address, and the tab itself shows the loading animation and says "new tab". (reproduce with any search engine with "open in a new tab" setting on)
If you open a link in a new tab using context menu, this doesn't happen and the address is filled correctly.
I feel like this shouldn't be like that:
Btw, something similar happens with DevTools - I've been in situations where I wanted to see what's being sent, but wasn't able to see the payload till the request failed, but I think there already is an idea/discussion/bug about that
