Left clicking resources in PG or in search result opens resource in new tab. I would like an option to open resource in a floating window with Ctrl+left click. I often do reading in floating window because it's more narrow than the reading view.

I'd go SHIFT+CLICK to bring the behaviour inline with Internet Explorer. CTRL+CLICK already opens a resource in a new tab.

I think Logos just respond to mouseclick. Shift+Click, Ctrl+Click and Alt+Click will all open resource in new tab.

It depends on the context. If the resource was going to open in a new tab anyway, then SHIFT, CTRL or ALT make no difference. But if the resource was going to open within the existing tab (i.e. it is an internal link to the current resource), then CTRL opens it in a new tab instead.
