    hi

    in safari

    how do i get it to NOT switch to the new tab when i 'right click -> open in new tab'

    ??

    I used to be able to do this in Firefox. It's great for Digg, so I can just open pages in new tabs, but not have to get switched to that tab automatically.

    Now that I think of it, is there a way to open links in a new tab WITHOUT having to 'right click -> open in new tab' ??
    in safari?

    thanks
    :)

    Safari > Preferences Then click on tabs tab. Then disselect "Select tabs and windows as they are created".

    To answer your first question, go to Safari Preferences --> Tabs and turn off "Select tabs and windows as they are created."

    For your second question, I'm not aware of a way to open every single clicked link in a new tab by default. But instead of right clicking, you could Command-click the link as long as you have the preference set correctly in Tabs. Don't know if that's any easier.

    If you have a programmable multi-button mouse, you can probably program one of the buttons to be Command-click, making it very easy.
