No longer able to open links in a new tab

Has there been a change made recently to the way links on the site work? Up until now, I used to Command + click on a link to open it in a new tab. Now when I try to do it, it always opens the link on the same tab, notwithstanding my holding down the Command key.

Thanks for letting me know. I'm glad to read you are planning on removing those ugly hashes. I was always wondering when will you ever drop them in favor of the much cleaner URLs generated by the HTML5 History API.

This seems to be specific to the recent Chrome update (Version 28) - the shortcut still seems to work with Version 27 and Canary. We're looking into this:)
