Thanks - the same works for my touchpad - but requires significant
extra effort and is not always reliable. Sometimes the computer doesn't
register (or I don't manage to push) both buttons at the same time -
with the result that the computer thinks I'm trying to right or left click.
Basically, does anyone know how I make *left clicking* a link in Chrome
open it in a tab in the background. That's all I'm looking for. I'm
largely uninterested in any other workarounds (unless they are less
effort on a standard laptop than single left click.) :)
