AAGH! That's horrible. I just complained about the lack of
middle-click-open-url functionality (which, I remind you again, has been
a feature of Unix/X11 browsers since the beginning of time), and now I
find it's a disabled-by-default hidden feature implemented wrong. 

There should be no new tab. It should be on by default. And no, I simply
can not believe that someone would CLICK the scroll wheel when they
meant to roll it. Geez, what's wrong with your mouse? Someone take a
hammer to it in the past?
