We're actively working on improving the Preview functionality. We made this change so that we could make sure that if the Preview window was already open, Firefox could bring it to your attention. When it opened in a tab, Firefox prevents us from doing that. This change also makes the behavior more consistent across browsers, as Preview still opens in a new window in both IE and Safari.

In the future, we may streamline this a bit more. We know popup windows aren't your favorite things, and in general we try to keep them to a minimum.
