Make ctrl-click open new tab #3723
This interferes with it being possible to make multiselects with the ctrl/cmd key.
So I see two possibilities on how to handle this: we keep the behaviour as it is (normal multiselect + new tab opeing) or we remove the crtl/cmd keys from triggering multiselect.
And you think it should not open a new column?
Since the multiselect is not possible here, I don't see the problem with it opening a new tab - even when clicking on the row instead of the anchor.
Plus: I personally really like having a little preview over what i just opened in a new tab :)
Well, the default behavior of a browser in this case is to open the target in a new window (for browsers nowadays in a new tab) while the page where the link was clicked stays the same. Consider for a moment someone clicking on a link like this in the right-most column. The left column is lost, what's probably not what the user wanted.
