    I know there's the option to have Safari open links in a new tab if you Command-click it. Is there a way to set Safari so that it always opens links in a new tab and NEVER opens them in a new window. New browser windows are SO ANNOYING!!!

    With the power of Google (search phrase: safari open link in new tab) I present you with this. Enter the following into Terminal.

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.Safari TargetedClicksCreateTabs -bool true
    Also, if you use the title of your thread in a Google search you'll find this answer. Imagine that.

    Is there any way to set this directly from the Safari GUI?

    Nope, they left it out of the GUI. Perhaps in a future version. A 3rd party plugin could potentially add it though, in theory.

    There's no reason to get snippy.

    Sure there is. The first step to getting help is always attempting to help yourself first. Plus, this question has been asked and answered many times before.

    Not snippy, just doing my part to edumacate the masses.
