Just how I resolved this problem a long time ago and still using it every single day:
I always use my third mouse button (the scroll wheel) to open a link in a new tab.
This is very handy because I almost always have the scroll wheel at my fingertip to search through the results. Almost every mouse got this and I use it on every Windows and Linux system (within a GUI of course).

I would use keyboard shortcuts.

Arrow to the results and then hit: Ctrl/Cmd + Enter

Also maybe remove the pop-up blocker and use keyboard shortcut: v

However that is just me I guess. :)
