Opera also provides this feature. A link address can be a very long and
unintelligible string, and perhaps you selected it many days ago and it
has been session-restored since then, and have since forgotten how you got
there. So there may be no way of remembering what the address was in a
deleted tab (other than manually restarting konqueror with a -session
argument - not practical for ordinary users). Having an easy method of
restoring a deleted tab really is a godsend sometimes.
