I agree. In fact, most of the items in the context menu are quite redundant, since there are many other ways to do the same functions.
The "Open file at cursor" is practically the only thing I use in the context menu, since there is no other way to do that (except from File/More menu). The function is very useful, it is needed both in programming and in html editing. It would be nice if this function would be moved to the beginning of the context menu.

I think this button has been there since 6.10.1!
However, it isn't there in the toolbar as default, so you will have to customize the toolbar.
Of course, you do not need to click this button every time you have done changes in the html file. Just hit Alt-Tab to switch to the browser, then hit F5 to refresh.
