Lightning UI needs to support CTRL/COMMAND + CLICK (open link in new tab)

Lightning Experience

The Lightning user interface does not support the CTRL+CLICK (windows) or COMMAND + CLICK (OSX) method of opening a link in a new tab. This is a nightmare for those of us who often need to open 15+ records at a time when we are drilling for information or analyzing a bunch of records.

It's a minor thing, but important for our sanity!

    PMs agree that any link that does not support opening in a new tab is a bug. The best way to get that triaged is to file a support case with reproducible steps. It might help to reference this Idea for context.

    Feel free to email me the case number and I can help shepherd it through the escalation process until it becomes a bug on the owning team's backlog.
