    Opening a link in a new tab (such as right clicking on it or option-clicking it) does not carry your current tab's history over into the new new tab. Is there a way to make that happen, so that in the new tab you can click "back" to go through the history of the first tab?

    Not in quite that way. New tab means new history list.

    Some alternatives:

    In Chrome, you can control-click on a tab and Duplicate it to create a second tab with the same history. You can then go on to other pages from that tab while maintaining your history. Safari/Firefox don't have that feature.

    In any browser, you can command-click on the back button of the tab, keep holding down command, and thereby open pages from your history in a new trab.

    And there's always the global History menu.
