Yes, I agree with Jason here.  While I know Zimbra does take over the
right-click menu, in general I don't really think it is a good idea.  We are in
a browser, after all; I might want to "Copy Link Location" or "Select All".
This is, of course, totally a subjective/style thing, but it fits in with the
principle of least surprise.
