Edge sidebar is good but this makes it less useful

I can highlight a piece of text and search for it in the sidebar, but the moment I click on a link in sidebar, it opens a new tab! this the opposite of what I expect and want. I want to search for something in sidebar and keep using the sidebar to complete my search. the whole idea is not to leave your current tab and do your search, right? but with this behavior, the user is interrupted and taken to a different tab.

 

another option I see missing is to right-click on a link and open it in sidebar.

 

last thing, make the sidebar panel resizable
