    How can you make safari always open new links in tabs. I don't like the fact that I have to hold shift and left click, it really slow me down.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated guys.:confused:

    There's no way to make this the default behavior, unfortunately.

    To open in new tabs you command-click, btw.

    Saft Demo

    I dowloaded Saft Demo
    http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/internet_utilities/saft.html
    It lets you always open a new windows in a tab. Plus other features like creating more short cuts w/ your defined buttons, u now can block ads, banners from the menu (instead of going to preferences). And tons of other features, u can read it at that li nk above.
    Thanks 4 replying.

    There is also glims, which is a free plugin (now compatible with safari 4 too). This particular behavior of safari has always bugged me, and the first thing I always end up doing is finding a way to add it. Glims is my favorite plug-in so far that adds this function.

    I found this Terminal command some time ago. It didn't work in the developer preview of Safari 4 but it does work in the Safari 4 beta for me. You must quit Safari first then restart.

    defaults write com.apple.Safari TargetedClicksCreateTabs -bool true

    This is the only reason I don't use Safari. If only we had tab mix plus for Safari.

    I think I have tried the terminal hack before without success. I will give it another go. Thanks.

    I'd be careful about installing plugins on the Safari 4 beta. There have been some stories on the forums recently about plugins really screwing it up. Unfortunately I can't remember any of them at the moment.

    Still no love from Terminal. Tried Saft also. Still doesn't work. Looks like I'm staying with Firefox.

    Edit: I was wrong, it does work for me. Any website with target="_blank" works.

    I want every link to open in a new tab.
