If you are the kind of person that is fine with pressing a key and then click, you are good to go. You can press Cmd (or Ctrl) and click on the bookmark: it will open in a new tab.
Only one click
If you are like me, you can’t remember the whole Cmd or Ctrl or whatever thing and, systematically, 9 out of 10 times, you are just gonna
- click the thing
- realize it’s opening in the same tab
- yell at clouds
- go back
- press Cmd or Ctrl or whatever it is and click to open the bookmark in a new tab.
