    Is there a way to open a new Tab in the same window from which I clicked the link? I would think there would be an option to this within Preference but everything there causes it to open in new window vs. a new tab in the same window. Firefox does it. Why can't Safari?

    Command-click opens a new window. I want to open a new tab in the same/current window. Am I doing something wrong?

    Go into Safari preferences > Tabs and check the first box ;)

    Or use, command-option-click.

    Tried it. It's not working for some odd reason.

    Get Opera (www.opera.com) Opera was the first mainstream browser to implement tabbed browsing, and they know what they're doing. Mouse gestures are also a big help. In safari, though, just right click (or control click, or two-fingers-on-track-pad-then-click click), and click open link in new tab. That should work.

    Oh yea, the preferences allows you to open all links in a new tab! I use that too

    All you need to enter is the command below into Terminal, hit enter, and you're sorted

    defaults write com.apple.Safari TargetedClicksCreateTabs -bool true

    If you want to reverse the change, it's a simple matter of entering the following into Terminal:

    defaults write com.apple.Safari TargetedClicksCreateTabs -bool false

    Restart Safari!!
