Console/tab/UX feedback and requests

First of all, thanks for the great work on eve, that's the best labbing tool I used so far. I'm a PRO version user, and even if that's my first post, I use the the thing almost every day, but I mainly spend time on labs than on tweaking it :)

Current version : 2.0.4-70-PRO

I use eve in two ways :
- html5 console to spawn quick labs
- direct ssh connection for more stable long term labs and thus bypassing eve management UI

So currently there's only two/three things that annoy me, which are related to the HTML5 UX.

1/ New console management

After having upgraded to the last version of Eve NG pro a couple of week ago, I notices that the HTML5 console management has been revamped. It looks like I can't open console in browser tabs anymore. I was used to do ctrl+tab for switching browser tabs/console, but it's not possible anymore.
I found a workaround (multiple tabs to eve topo, then one console in one tab, then full screen), but that's a bit of a PITA and loss of time in the end. Maybe an option (right click on node => open console in tab, or a default flag somewhere in the config) would be nice ?

2/ Session start screen / default session type dropdown

When logging to eve I have always the choice between native/html5/desktop. It would be cool to have an option to setup the default type of session to start, so I can set it up to start an HTML5 session by default. That would save me multiple clicks/day when there are guacamole timeouts.

3/ Guacamole session timeout

Somehow it looks like eve and guacamole sessions are not aligned, I often keep the tabs open for long hours, and sometimes I have to relog to eve to get my consoles working again (otherwise I have some html5 login page when opening a console).

Tha's all, hope that would be useful for the devs.

Thanks for the good work anyway !!
