This is a trick,

function openInNewTab(url) {
 window.open(url, '_blank').focus();
}

//or just
window.open(url, '_blank').focus();

In most cases, this should happen directly in the onclick handler for the link to prevent pop-up blockers, and the default “new window” behavior. You could do it this way, or by adding an event listener to your DOM object.

<div onclick="openInNewTab('www.test.com');">Something To Click On</div>
