Undocumented IE keyboard shortcuts Apps
If you hold down the command key when you click on a link, the link will open in a new window. But if you hold down command-shift when you click on a link, the link will open in a new window in BACK of all the other windows.

This is how I usually prefer to surf since I am on a slow dialup connection to the net. I can command-shift click on links I want to read and they will begin loading while I continue reading my current page.

[Editor's note: I checked, and I don't believe this has been published here before, although it has been around since the days of OS 9. Most browsers offer some form of "open in background", and if you haven't tried it yet, it's definitely the best way to open up new windows you wish to check while not interrupting your current task.]

Option-Click will download the link to disk. Im not quite sure how this is useful, but a hint is a hint.
