Is there a way to set Safari to automatically open links in new tab instead of a new window? Ive gone through preferences and I cant figure it out, i tried to google it and I know you can set it to open links from other apps in a new tab but it still opens web links in a new window?

In Terminal, enter

defaults write com.apple.Safari TargetedClicksCreateTabs -bool true

You can always undo this with

defaults write com.apple.Safari TargetedClicksCreateTabs -bool false

This didnt work

Did you restart Safari after entering the Terminal command? It certainly works for me, unless I don't understand what you want.

Really don't think you need any external software.
