TeXShop's previewer doesn't do separate windows (after all, that was a  
request that started this thread) but if you click on a link it takes  
you there and then clicking on the left arrow in the tool bar (there  
are page up/down arrows but also leftright arrows) it will take you  
back to where you were.

Good Luck,
