Open tab in background with long click (option)

  • Hi!
    The title says it all, I wish there would be an embedded feature allowing the user to open links in background when he clicks and holds the mouse button for a short time (click on release instead of click on press).
    It is extremelly usefull for those who use laptops with trackpad!

    A checkbox in the settings (ergonomics) would allow to enable/disable this feature.

    The behavior would be like "Open With Long-Click" for Opera 12:

    PS: There was an un-updated extension filling this role for Opera 14+ called "Open new tab" once, but it worked less and less well as Opera got new builds, and now it's not even available anymore...
