It is already. Just ensure that you don't have anything selected
within the page and the "WAVE this page" item should appear in the
context menu. There is also a default shortcut key of Control + Shift
+ U (Command + Shift + U on Mac). If this doesn't work, it may need to
be defined in the Keyboard Shortcuts settings for Extensions (also
available at chrome://extensions/shortcuts).

This isn't optimal because in many cases you may want to evaluate a
dynamic state of the page, and re-loading the page in a new tab would
negate this. You can, however, duplicate the tab (there is an option
for Duplicate in the Window menu) and then run WAVE there. I will,
however, look into an option for doing this automatically with the
WAVE extension in cases where this functionality is desired.
