It has annoyed me many times when trying to use IE that it behaved
differently from Mozilla.  The wisest thing to do is probably to follow
Mozilla's behaviour.

In mozilla Shift Click gives a save (download) dialog,
Ctrl+Click opens a new window also if you have a three button (or wheel)
mouse middle click will open a new window.
