Another way to make a new tab in Safari

I accidentally stumbled on this one today when I mis-clicked a tab in Safari 5.

Double-clicking the empty space in the Tab Bar just to the right of an open tab in Safari will create and open a new tab. Not sure how new this is, but I can't believe I have never thought to try this method before!

This is an addition to the other well-known ways of opening new tabs:

I'm sure there are probably a couple more ways to do this, but my most common are by far the first and last methods.

[crarko adds: I've seen all the other methods mentioned, but this one is new to me, too. It also worked in Firefox, and even in Terminal, but not in Chrome as far as I could tell. Post results for other browsers in the comments if you like.]
