    I was just wondering if there was a Safari tab button that you can put next to the Home/Refresh/Stop buttons? Is there an application or upgrade or something that will add it? I keep thinking the Bookmark button is a "new tab button", haha. Thanks a bunch!

    I've thought of using FireFox, I actually used it as my primary browser on my windows pc. I guess I wanted to give Safari a chance.. I love using tabs on FireFox, I guess I might just go down that road. I really do like the Inquisitor feature on Safari though haha. What do you use by the way?

    i use safari, and use command+T to open a new tab, and command+W to close tabs. Only beacuase FireFox takes days to load. Just try both, and see what you find more comfortable.

    Here is a rather complicated method for adding one. There used to be several programs that could enable this (SafariButtons and Ollie's Tab are ones that come to mind), but I think they've all disappeared or not been updated to work with the latest versions of Safari.

    camino

    Try googling for a 3rd party app that has the feature - try Safari Enhancer (i'm not sure if that has been updated with new versions of Safari... but it's worth a shot)

    Or, download Camino (a much better alternative than Firefox, IMHO)

    you have to enable the tab option first... go to preferences; then the tab section; and click to enable tabs browsing.


    then when you have it enabled...all you have to do to open a link in anther tab is push (command and "click")
