    In Safari when you highlight text on webpage "search in Google" it opens in the same page. Can you make it open in a new tab, ie so it doesnt replace the page your on?

    cheers

    Hold down Command () when clicking "Search in Spotlight".

    I don't want spotlight search though.

    If you hightlight text on a page in safari then right click (command-click), you get a menu with "search with Google..." if you click this the google page opens but in the tab you are on. I want it to open a new tab with the Google search.

    Cheers

    Sorry, I meant "Search with Google". Thus hold down the Command () key while clicking on it.
