    Anything from most forums will open in a new window. What you should do is cmd+click and choose "open in new tab." There is a way to force all new windows to open up in tabs in firefox, but I don't know if you can do it in Safari.

    When you click on a new link hold down the Apple key it will open in new tab. See the jpeg below for other tab options in Safari.

    Apple-Shift-Left/Right Arrows. Or Apple-} / {

    Or click on them. Apple-W closes them, Apple-T opens a new one.

    And you'd also be amazed to note that if you look at the functions in the menus, lo and behold, the shortcuts are written next to them! :eek: ;) :D

    Control + click will open up the menu to select a new tab.
    Command + click will just open the link in a new tab.

    If you have a multi-button mouse, clicking with the middle button will open the link in a new tab.
