    If you right click a hyperlink and select "Open in new tab" the browser
    should switch to the new tab that is opened, just as "Open in new window"
    switch to the new window".

    Actually it should be a configurable option
    I can imagine a site where you're looking at an index of articles and you
    want to open this, this, this, this and this in new tabs.
    Not switchign focus would allow you to get each of those pages opening while
    you're still looking at the index

    It is a configurable option, at least in IE7b2. Go to Tools -> Internet
    Options, on the General tab in the Tabs section, click Settings. There is a
    checkbox to set the option: "Always switch to new tabs when they are created".

    Hope this helps.
