Is there some way to get Safari to open tabs in the same window? I don't see anything in preferences
Do you have the Beta (Safari 3 Beta)? And are you asking how you make it so clicking on links by default opens a new tab? or just how you open a new tab?
holding down the key while clicking some link opens it in a new tab in the same window for me.
Also, you should be able to make it the default through preferences.

That only works for other applications.
What we'd like to see is a way to tell Safari to take links that would normally open in a new window (like the forum spy) and have them open in tabs instead through a preference setting rather than command-click...
Okay, so I'm confused about the original question....
1) Just to make sure, you're not asking if Safari has tabs at all, are you? You laugh, but people have actually started numerous threads asking why Apple makes a crappy browser that doesn't even have tabbed browsing. Obviously, it does, and you can configure the basics of how they behave from the Tabs pane of preferences.
2) If you want windows that normally open as new windows to open in tabs instead, Safaristand does this. It's free, there are versions for both Safari 2 and Safari 3, and it works very nicely. In the first preference pane, on the lower right side, there is a checkbox that says "open _blank..." see the picture:
SAFT also does this.
mkrisknan, wow...I'm one of those people who thought Safari wasn't so great cause it didn't have tabbing options. I learned something new today!
Thanx for everyones input. I couldn't figure out if there was a way to get Safari to work the tabs opening in the same window like Firefox does. I saw something in preferences about control clicking, but why the hell should you have to do that. I'll give Safaristand a try, Thanx again
