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:
- Close Safari
- Open Terminal
- type in
defaults write com.apple.safari TargetedClicksCreateTabs -bool trueand press enter
Tada! You’re done. Quick and painless.
