Is is possible to open a link in a new background tab in Google Chrome with a keyboard shortcut?

(I know it's possible with Ctrl+click and middle click, and I know that Shift+Enter opens the link in a new browser window.)

"Ctrl + Enter" should work...

Provided the cursor is active on the link, hover doesn't work –  Sathya Oct 3 '10 at 17:55
    
Thanks a lot! I thought I had tried all possible keyboard combinations with the Enter key, but apparantly not the most obvious one. :) –  Jan Aagaard Oct 3 '10 at 19:07

  1. Type your query in the search box.
  2. Press ENTER
  3. When the results page appears, press Tab once.
  4. You should be able to see an arrow pointing towards the first link.
  5. You can move to other links using Up and Down arrows.
  6. Go to the link you want and press Ctrl+Enter to open in a new tab or just Enter to open in the same tab. You can use Shift+Enter to open it in a new window.
