A new icon is being tested by Bing in its search results interface, which will allow searchers to open the search result they are interested in directly or in a new window.

There are some searchers who have seen a rectangular box with an arrow when hovering over a search result.  It can display on an ad or organic listing.  The icon’s alternative text reads, “Click here to open in a new tab.”  When clicking on it, that result opens up in a new tab while keeping the Bing search results as they were in the previous window.

The following screenshot is from The SEM Post blog:

I was unable to replicate this myself across different search queries.

Bing as a search setting that allows users to set this behavior by default.  You can select “Open links from search results in a new tab or window” in the search settings as well.
