Ctrl-Back opens the referring page in a new tab in Chrome

In Chromium/Google Chrome, holding down the Ctrl button while clicking on the back button will open a new tab with the appropriate page (history.go(-1)) in a new tab.

I don't know how long this has been a feature, but I accidentally stumbled across this today. Very useful for me. I often open many links from a single page (a directory page or SERP for example). When I fail to Ctrl-click, I need to go back, and ctrl-click the link, which is tedious when it results in two spurious page loads (loading the new page, re-loading the list page and then re-loading the new page again).

Tagged gui.
