Make Safari Open Links in New Tabs Instead of New Windows
December 04, 2008
From 456 Berea Street comes this tip on forcing Safari to open targeted links in a new tab rather than in a new browser window. (NB: I changed the order of the steps slightly to suit my way of thinking.)
- Open a Terminal window.
- Type the follow command but don't press enter yet: defaults write com.apple.Safari TargetedClicksCreateTabs -bool true
- Quit Safari.
- Press enter in the Terminal to execute the command.
- Restart Safari, and enjoy new tabs rather than new windows.
