Open links as background tabs by clicking links and holding for a half second.
This extension enabled opening links in a new tab with one button. When installed a long click on a link (½ second) will cause it to open in a new background tab.
This is an alternative to "middle-click" or "right-click->new tab" which is especially useful when using it on button-less laptops (Macbook) or laptops with only two buttons.
Note: This should work on all sites, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you notice any issues.
