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 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.

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.
