That being said, this does not cause any link to open in a separate browser window, but just a different tab. As you've noted, CTRL+SHIFT+Enter opens that tab and throws your focus to it at the same time (and it opens immediately to the right of whatever tab you're currently using) while CTRL+Enter opens the tab in the same position, but doesn't throw focus to it.
I haven't used separate windows when web browsing since the advent of Tabbed browsing. I find it much easier to switch tabs than to ALT+TAB through multiple windows, many of which are not my web browser when doing so.
