You can forgo extensions altogether if you don’t mind skipping out on the trusty left mouse button. Instead, just press the scroll wheel or middle mouse button to open links in separate tabs in a jiffy.

If you use a touchpad, consider performing an action that simulates a middle mouse click — usually, it’s a three-fingered click or tap.

On some devices, you may need to activate this action, or even rebind it to another. To do that, open the Control Panel (search for it on the Start menu), click Hardware and Sound, and then click Mouse.
