    Is there a way of getting Safari to open a link in a new tab in the existing window rather than opening a new window? Before anyone shouts I have got that ticked in the preferences, but it doesn't do it.

    Here is an example of what I mean, in google mail, if I choose the google finance option, it opens it in a while new window, not in a new tab in the same window.

    Pay no mind to the Google Chrome default setting.

    Why do you need another app to do what Safari does already? :confused:

    Sorry, that doesn't help me. I want to know how to get Safari to STOP opening new windows and do it all in tabs in the same window.

    I already have 'open links from applications - in a new tab in the current window' but it doesn't do it.

    Hrm ok I must have misunderstood entirely. I think I get what you're saying now and maybe you do need an addon app.

    Which is what Glims will do.

    Try command + click like the instructions say. Am I missing something? :p

    No no they're right. I was entirely wrong. Glims kind of bypasses the who entire new window. It seems nice though I'm into Chrome right now so I doubt it's useful for me.

    I also like how Glims lets you use the <> keys to switch between tabs.
