why is it that safari 3 no longer has tabbed browsing, or more precisely the tabbed browsing option that was once present before the upgrade to safari 3? and before anyone tells me NOOO safari 3 doesn't have tabbed browsing. It won't go directly to tabs like it once did, i can't understand why they would eliminate such a great feature??? also, I or anyone else should not have to hold down a button combination to display a link into a tab, there should be a feature that performs this with a simple click in the preferences pane.

any ideas, suggestions, complaints..

thanks..later

I'm not sure what your getting at. My tabs work the same as they did in Safari 2.

What I think you are looking for has been moved to the View Pull Down on Safari. Check this Pic.

Click on Show Tab Bar and it will always be visible. I hope this is what you are looking for. Made me think for a few minutes till I checked the View Menu.

okay.. i mean that when i click certain links the page will open in a new window, ????? the only place i can think of to fix this problem is preferences in the safari pane and i go to general and click the box at the end of the page but, still the problem persists./???? maybe someone could just tell me what i should do to enable the tabbed browsing and we can go from that point.

thanks

Unfortunately, it's not that easy. Some links just open up in a new window unless you tell it to do differently. (No matter what your preferences say.) You can right-click on the link and say "Open Link in New Tab" or you can hold Cmd while you click. Either of these choices will do what you want it to, and IMO, they're not too much out of the way.

Ok, you just asked HOW to enable Tabbed Browsing. Safari, Preferences and the Tabs tab. Here is a pic. The only setting in Safari and Tabs that is different from Tiger to Leopard is that first thing I showed you. Otherwise the settings are the same.

This is where to enable Tabbed Browsing. If this is not what you want, there is nothing more I can suggest as Tabs work here just as they did in Tiger.

iLindzo also gave you some very good info!

Maybe you had saft installed while you were using Tiger. Saft makes tabbing a much better game than the default tab features of Safari...

I'd love to see a *every* window open in a new tab, instead of new window, just like in Firefox feature!

No way dude. It was the same in Tiger. You must surely have installed Saft or something.

goobimama is correct. Safari works the same way in Tiger or Leopard here. For clicking on a URL like say www.mac-forums.com and have it open in a tab either Right Click and hit Open Link in New Tab or Command Click and it will do the same. The setting in the Preferences says Open Links From Applications.

Edit, I am on my old Power Mac G4 500 in 10.4.10 still using Safari 2. It works EXACTLY the same as Safari 3 in Leopard 10.5.1. You right click on a URL in a post or Command Click to open it in a new TAB.
