Safari: Open links in a new tab by default (Mac)

One of the first surprises with Safari was that there was no option to open links in a new tab instead of a new window.  I think it’s annoying to have a new window popup because you lose immediate access to the other tabs if you’re surfing the web full screen.  I’m a huge fan of the tabbed browsing though so maybe it’s a bigger deal to me than others…

Super easy steps to enable this feature:

  1. Close Safari
  2. Open Terminal
  3. type in defaults write TargetedClicksCreateTabs -bool true and press enter

Tada!  You’re done.  Quick and painless.
