Came across an interesting, potentially useful tip on a extension for the Chrome web browser called “Keyboard Navigation“, on the excellent blog makeuseof.com.
From the blog:
The extension defines a hot key (,) which places a hint next to every link on the page that can be clicked. While the hint is displayed, key in the characters next to a link to highlight it. You can then do one of the following:
Hit Enter to open the highlighted link in the current tab.
Hit Ctrl + Enter to open the highlighted link in a new tab.
