Are you looking for a way to quickly open links in new tabs while surfing? The following script will let you do just that without even having to click on your mouse. Simply hover your mouse over a link and use a keyboard shortcut. A new tab will be opened in the web browser, and the view will be switched to the new tab (the new tab will become active).
