Hey Liviu,

in fact the decision for the modifier wasn't overly funded, ie. it was
based on half a fozen people saying what they like.

I would appreciate if you could file a bug about that and also mention
the reason why Alt is impractical for you. Would you do that?

Then we can talk about modifying the key if deemed appropriate.

You can also mention your enhancement suggestion to open a new tab in
the background via a different modifier.

Eventually it might be worth exploring if that hotkey should be
configurable, which currently is not possible.
