Sometimes a website will use target="blank" instead of target="_blank" (missing the underscore). When doing a ctrl-click on those kinds of links in Chrome, the browser will open the link in a new tab AND switch to that tab, instead of just opening that link in a new tab. Right-clicking on the link and selecting "open in new tab" still works as it should.
It becomes a problem if you need to open a large number of links. Is there any way to get ctrl-click to work as intended with these types of links?
Edit: Chrome version is 15.0.874.121m, which is the latest at the time of this writing. For an example of the problem, copy and paste below into an HTML file and open in Chrome. Ctrl-click the first link will open a new tab only, ctrl-click the second link will open a new tab and switch to it. I'm trying to avoid having it switch to the new tab in the case of the second link.
