CTRL + Click opens new tab in IE7

Is this a well known trick and I'm just completely out of touch? Probably, but I was very excited when I found out that holding down CTRL when clicking a link in IE7 will open the link in a new tab.

To think all this time I was using right click and then "Open In New Tab". I guess my productivity has just gone up by 0.1% :-)
