I can't tell if a link will open in a new tab or in the active tab so I have the habit of right clicking but assuming that people are in a hurry (which includes me in some occasions), a one-click-link-to-open-in-a-new-tab is very convenient. It can also shorten the process of learning and acquiring information thus speeding the flow. Btw, does the links in images and sigs also apply the option of opening? :question:

Funny thing is you will probably by habit keep clicking with the right mouse button to open in a new page even though you do not have to anymore.
