In the right-click-menu of a tab there should be an option "Open this tab in new window."

What's wrong with clicking the dragging the tab out of the window?

1. Usability:
Some people don't like dragging. And on some UI-configurations in Windows it's even problematic.

2. Accessibility:
Handicaped / impaired people often have big problems or even are not move the mouse while holding a mouse key pressed.

Some of them can't even use the mouse and move the cursor with the keyboard.

The same for older people: 
E.g. my grandma: she can move the mouse, click, and so on. But she has big problems with dragging (keep the mouse key pressed while moving the mouse). (And she has problems with double-clicks, but that's another story.) And many older users have exactly the same problems.

And I strongly believe, that a product should not only be for young and healthy people, but also for older and/or handicaped and impaired people.

And also remember, that even some young and healthy people don't like to drag. And with some devices (trackball, touchpad, ...) it's even not as easy as with a mouse.

Any chance this can come with a shortcut as well.

The a11y aspects should be addressed by mouse lock (This is issue 207971) and the existing tap dragging feature found in the a11y section of settings.

tap dragging: 
 1. "tap - release finger - tap - maintain finger on trackpad steady for a split second" to trigger the tap dragging mode. 
 2. from there move your finger to drag around.

Let me close this as a duplicate of 207971 (same root cause).
