Quickly open tabs in the background of your web browser

Posted: July 15, 2011 in Tech

So nowadays tabbed browsing is common with all of us. Sometimes we’re browsing along the web and  want to open a page but not bother to look at it right this second. Usually you  right-click the link and choose “Open Link in New Tab” but this little keyboard shortcut can save you from the trouble and even save some time. The easier way is that all you have to do is hold down the Control key (on Windows) or Command (on Mac) and just click the link you want to open. This will open a tab in the background and you won’t have to deal with it right away. You can also do this with bookmarks and bookmark folders that are sitting in your toolbar. Some Windows browsers will even save you a step and allow you to “middle click” (this generally refers to pushing scroll wheel on your mouse) to perform this action. Either way, it’s a handy trick when browsing the web……..
