For the Firefox users out there, a useful tip from Bernie Zimmermann. Position your cursor over a link, and click on it with the middle mouse button, and a new tab will automatically open for you. If you have a scroll wheel instead, that may work too! (At least mine does). No more Ctrl T to open new tabs! Also, when you want to close a tab, middle click on it. Excellent little tip!
Comments:
. . . that's windows (and maybe mac). For Linux users, the defaults are a bit different -- middle mouse opens a link in a new tab as expected but middle clicking the tab won't close it -- it will direct the tab to the contents of the clipboard.

This behavior can be changed, though, by going to about:config
and changing:
middlemouse.contentLoadURL
to false.
