    Any time that I click on a link in email from Mail it opens in a New Window in Safari. Is there any way to get it to open in a new Tab?

    That would be very cool. I mean, Tabs are there for a reason, aren't they? I always kinda thought that reason was so that a new window didn't have to open.

    In the "General" pane of Safari's preferences, choose "in the current window" under the option "Open links from applications".

    Glad to be of service.

    Sweet!

    I don't think I've looked at the General pane since I upgraded. Thanks for the tip.

    The odd thing is that the other day I clicked on a link in Mail and it opened in a new tab. I was caught off guard 'cause it usually hadn't done that and I hadn't made any changes. When I tried it again it didn't work.

    I was trying all kinds of different keyboard tricks to see if it would work but nothing did.

    Anyway, thanks again.

    While we are on the topic, is there a way to pick which browser opens up for link in Mail?

    Most definitley! :)

    just go to your System Prefrences...
    click on the Internet icon.
    then click on the Web tab...

    and set your browser :) and its all smooth sailing from there..
