Have option for 'Open in background tab' to be default

In all the other desktop browsers I have used over many years, the default behaviour is for 'Open link in new tab' to be in the background.
I appreciate the design decision that 'Open link in new tab' foregrounds the newly-added tab, but it would be nice to toggle between the Vivaldi Way and Classic Mode for opening new tabs.

@benjamin-rood When you click a link with the middle mouse button it opens in the background tab. This is of course not the perfect option switch you want but it works pretty well if you ask me.
Middle-click and mouse gestures can also be used.

I've resorted to using this extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/jgandipoihcbegfmadfblgjghjgigpfd
Long Press New tab allows you to hold down the mouse over a link for a determined period of time to have the browser open the new tab in the background. I, too, wish there was a toggle to enable this option as it takes the functionality seen in my other browsers by default.
