The &, -n, and server-start aren't strictly necessary.  Here's one
alternative:

$ emacs --daemon
$ emacsclient a.html
$ emacsclient b.html
$ emacsclient c.html

And here's another:

$ export ALTERNATE_EDITOR=
$ emacsclient a.html
$ emacsclient b.html
$ emacsclient c.html

It's not clear to me exactly what it is you're asking for, though.  What
is the "new way" you refer to?  Can you please elaborate?

Thanks,
