I was using my IE 10 when I right-clicked a link and its context menu showed up, I saw the first option was "Open Link". First thing that came to my mind was "What a useless option!". Since if I would simply open the link, I would click with left button.
I realized that this option comes from early IE versions, like version 6 - as far I can remember. Important to say that no other (major)browser have that option on context menu.
The question is: Why they keep that option for so long? Is it possible to have a meaning to that?
