I think you have a point that we should use only the left click in order to fire an event and the right click for exposing the context menu.
I am not sure about your case and how you reproduce this behavior because it does not happen with standard HTML anchor <a>
tag so I used Kendo Tabstrip widget. Indeed if I try to inspect the tabstrip button it launches a click event and a new view is loaded.
I logged this case in our product backlog for further consideration.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
