Why not combine both approaches? For example:
- Left click on New-Layer Button: Create a layer of the same type the user added last time. - Right click on New-Layer Button: Show a popup and let the user choose which kind of layer he wants to create.


The right click will be a short route for creating a layer of the same size as the image but with different background fills. Additionally an "advanced" menu entry could be added to the popup, showing the current dialog.

This should make things more fluid.

Once you have selected what kind of new layer you want, simply hitting the
return (enter) afterward will give you a layer of the kind you choose last.
As someone who uses GIMP for product photography, I often want a new white
layer rather than a transparent one. My 2p.

The create a new layer button in the layers tab always pops up a dialog
box. Like the bucket fill tool, I wonder how many use this pop-up dialog to
determine whether the layer should be bg, fg colour filled or transparent.

IMO, the new layer button should just create a new transparent layer. The
dialog window should be optional.
