    Safari Preferences---> General tab
    At the bottom you can select it to open in new tab

    That only applies to other applications (i.e. Mail, Word, etc.). This is what you want for links from within Safari:



    Open Terminal.app (Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal). Then enter the following:
    defaults write com.apple.Safari TargetedClicksCreateTabs -bool true

    Then restart Safari.
