keyup handler causing weird behaviour for opening links in new tab

This is on Chrome 63.0, OSX

When CMD+Clicking a link, the expected behaviour is that the link is opened in a new tab in the background.

instead, on MP, it causes a moment of noticeable lag, opens the new tab, and gives it focus. Right click + "Open link in new tab" works as expected.

The behaviour's fixed after removing a keyup listener on <a> elements.
