Too many windows

Every now and then I'll click a link in the Android browser and an alert will pop up, telling me I have too many windows open. Should I blame the web programmer for insisting that a new window be created? No, he/she might never have imagined their site being used on my tiny, wondrous computer. The developers of the Android web browser, on the other hand, had a pretty good idea where their program would be running and should have left the new-window decision up to me. The very idea of multiple windows, unless the user has requested such a thing, seems contrary to the natural flow of the Android UI. So let it never be said that this Phandroid never had a critical word for Google, even if it is a small one.
