As for your second question, can you explain what you are trying to do? As I understand it, you are looking for a way to click on a link, have it open that link in a new tab and close the tab the original link was in? If so, why open it in a new tab? If the point is to view the link without having a new tab open, why not just view the link in the tab you already have open? Another words, just left click on it.
