I almost always open links in a new tab (by middle clicking). I imagine that it's common browsing behaviour.
Not for your average ( non webmaster/geeky )surfer ..most of them don't know that the scroll wheel is for scrolling/and or clicking ..and some don't know that pages scroll..
Believe me, I have watched hundreds, if not thousands of average surfers, the people that 99% of ads are aimed at.
agree ..it's a shame image ads and flash ads didn't get this "extra"..they'd be easier to ban ..which is probably why they didn't..G makes money from image ads that "brand" ..we don't ..they just make sites look like crap.
