Well, easier doesn't mean safe. Browsers keep a lot of state around that
can potentially be used to track you across different Tor circuits.
That's why New Identity now restarts the whole browser. Everybody knows
that the usability of that is awful, but there's no better solution
right now.

If Vidalia had any means to control the browser process, it would have
restarted it also in the old design.
