I usually middle-click (button-2) the link, which causes Netscape to open
the link in a new window.  Then I can minimize it (either with the mouse
or using the [-] (Minus) key on my numpad - I set that up in Sawfish) or
shove it to a different part of my virtual desktop (by dragging it, or
"throwing" it by pressing CTRL+ALT+Arrow - another function I set up in
Sawfish :) )

Yep.  I do that accidentally a lot. :)

I'm set up with Helix-^H^H^H^H^H^H^H Ximiam-Gnome here at work (Debian)
and at home (RedHat).
