    Adventures Getting Tabbed Browsing Working in Safari
    So I'm trying to get tabbed browsing to work in Safari. I read all the posts saying "Just go to Preferences in the Safari menu and set it there" but I can't find the menu! I'm right clicking all over the place on the Safari window hoping that somehow I'll hit the magic spot that some devious Mac programmer deemed to be the "menu spot". Maybe its one of those keyboard shortcuts, I thought. Something like Control+Option+Tab+O+K.

    Then I look up.

    So here's the lesson for all my fellow Winfiends-turned-Macheads:
    Look up...see the menu at the very top of your screen (not active window...look for the blue apple logo in the top left corner)? The program name of whatever the active window is will appear there, and that's where the menu can be found.

    At first I thought "How stupid" but the more I thought about it, it totally unclutters the windows itself, giving more real estate to the stuff that matters.

    So yeah, just FYI.

    Tabbed browsing allows you to open up a bunch of pages within a single window. If you look at my attachment you will see I have 4 mf windows and an apple page open in a single firefox window

    Here's what Safari looks like with tabs...

    (I open all my unread threads in tabs and work through them that way - it saves me jumping back and forward and helps me remember which ones I haven't looked at yet )

    Hey

    I too am using Safari, what i wanted it to do it use only one Safari window and any links that are clicked, open in a new tab. Is this possible to do? Seems now it doesnt open a tab in the window, it just opens a who new window.

    there is a plugin called SafariStand that allows you to have the new windows open in new tabs automatically

    can't you enable links to open in a new tab through safari's preferences?
