Double click on a link

Hi, I would like have the ability to double click on a link to open in a new tab either in foreground or background. This feature is available in Firefox via a plugin. Would love to see in this in Vivaldi as I find it very useful.
@Godwin There are already several easy ways to do this: Shift + Click, Right-click, Open, Mouse Gestures.
I don't see double-click working well. If you're not quick enough, won't it be interpreted as a single-click?

Ctrl+Click (or middle click) for background new tab
Shift+Click for foreground new tab
Click for same tab

It works well in Firefox. I guess it registers as single click if you don't click again within the specified time which i believe is 250ms. Its very useful and quick if i want to open a link in a new tab just using the mouse only. Right now this is how I've setup:
- single click opens in the same tab
- middle click opens in background tab
So I want another click action to open the link in the foreground tab and I think double clicking is the best way to do that. I don't want to assign the right click for it as i need the menu when right clicking. My other option is using an extension to have long presses on links...it does the job but not so quick as double clicking...
@Godwin Try GestureDown

I also search a comfortable solution to open link into foreground tab. I've tried a lot of solution like gestures, rocker gestures, but finally what about this simple way for a simple and common function ? Whatever it is, this should be a good option for advanced users and maybe for the other users too. This doesn't cancel the others cases, this is only another way : several ways to do the same thing is common in computer science, this is a way to get easier the function access, i think.
Anyway, since the link suggested is outdated, this is an equivalent add-on which runs only on Firefox (take time to setup time click to 250 ms into options)
[modedit] removed link to Firefox addon as Vivaldi can not use Mozilla addons
