Is it possible to open a link into a new tab, but only when the link redirects to another domain ?

"Ctrl + Click" or "RightClick --> Open in new Tab" are no solutions. I know about this, but I search an even easier way.

Example: --> --> Open in same tab --> --> Open in new tab

I also take extensions :)

By when the link redirects to another URL, you mean when the link redirects to another domain – Sathya May 6 '13 at 7:51
exactly, I'll fix it – Solaflex May 6 '13 at 7:53
And you do not want to right click to open them in new Tab, right? – avirk May 6 '13 at 7:59
No, not really. Ctrl + Click is also very annoying. I hoped, that there is an extension or something else. – Solaflex May 6 '13 at 8:02
I understand you want this done automatically, based on the domain, but since you mention the two ways you open new tabs, I thought you might want to know that "middle click" is a great shortcut to open in a new tab (also to close tabs, if you middle click the tab itself) – Amer May 6 '13 at 9:39

For Mac keyboard

Press ⌘-Shift and click a link,

Opens the link in a new tab and switch to that tab.

Press Shift and click a link

Opens the link in a new window.

As I said in the comments, I look for a extension, which detects it automatically and open the new tab itself when I click on it. – Solaflex May 6 '13 at 9:00
I missed that, sorry. I would be helpful to have that in your original question and not in the comments. – Buscar웃 May 6 '13 at 9:03
Ok, I updated it – Solaflex May 6 '13 at 9:10
