Clicking a link while holding down Ctrl (Ctrl+Left-click) opens the link in a background tab. This is useful for quickly opening several links that will take time to load from a main page without having to jump back and forth each time you create a new tab. Clicking a link while holding down Shift and Ctrl (Shift+Ctrl+Left-click) opens the link in a foreground tab. You can reverse the way these two shortcuts work by going to Tools | Options | Advanced and clicking the Select new tabs opened from links checkbox under Tabbed Browsing.
