This API method opens the specified URL in a new background tab.
GM_openInTab( url )

- Compatibility: Greasemonkey 0.5b+
- All properties are optional except url.
- Value: String
url = "http://www.greasespot.net/";
Opening webpages by invoking this method may not be the ideal choice, because this method doesn't save the referring page, which makes webservers think that you are calling a page only by it's URL, and not from the webpage it was on.
In the cases where it doesn't work, one may use
window.open(url) instead, which is similar in that it opens a new tab, but it keeps the referrer and switches to the tab immediately.
