Just an idea:
there are already menu items (i.e. actions) for 'new window' and 'new
tab' (Ctrl-T and Ctrl-N on my system). Why not re-using them?
This wouldn't work with GTK out of the box but a
globally installed key-press-signal handler could check whether the
user pressed one of these both keybindings and if so, it checks if the
current input focus is inside the location bar and if so, then it
performs the desired action based on the pressed keys (obviously).

In other words, typing an URL in the location bar and pressing Ctrl-T
opens the URL in a new tab, pressing Ctrl-N opens the URL in a new

And what happens when pressing simply Enter with or without any
modifiers is up to Christian :). E.g. downloading a super-fancy skin
pack, muhahah.
