Steps to reproduce:

OCCASIONALLY wanted to 'open link in new tab and switch to it', but
USUALLY just like the default behavior of just 'open link in new tab',
therefore an additional right click menu item to do the former should be added.

Yes there are ways to make it 100% do one or the other, but no way to get a 85/15% ratio without an additional menu item.

Is this a bug or an enhancement?

You can keep the default option, and when you wish to open the link in a new tab, hold "Ctrl" on the keyboard.

Holding CTRL and middle clicking,
or holding CTRL and clicking on open in a new tab,
do not switch to the new window for me.

1) Do "Shift+MiddleClick on link" and "Ctrl+Shift+MiddleClick on link" solve this to you?
2) Isn't it enough?
