I am on a page and I need to open a link. Right now, I have to press ctrl and then click the link then it opens in a new tab. I don't want to do this.

What I want is that whenever I click any link it should always open in a new tab. Is this possible with Firefox or Chrome or any other browser?

You can add that functionality to Firefox with this add on: Open Link In New Tab.

Personally I have got into the habit of right-clicking on links and choosing "Open Link in New Tab" from there.

Right click!

There is no setting in Chrome for this that I know of, however...

You could use a chrome extension:

Or just middle click links (by clicking with your scrollwheel) instead of ctrl+click (works in Firefox too).

This answer might be helpful for Firefox.

What is middle click?? – IcyFlame Mar 15 '13 at 7:14
Oh do you mean pressing the scroll key? – IcyFlame Mar 15 '13 at 7:15
@IcyFlame Some mice have a middle mouse button / scroll-wheel. – Web_Designer Mar 15 '13 at 7:15
