    Single Click to open link in new tab in Safari?
    Hi,

    I just started using Safari (just downloaded the full S4) again (instead of firefox) and am loving it - its so quick. But, being used to Firefox, I have it set to open links in a new tab with just a click - not in a new window/navigate away from the current page. Is there anyway to have Safari like this or will have to continue with CMD+click?

    Cheers
    S

    I would love to know if there's a way to do this as well. It is very annoying to have a new window open.

    Like you I used to have a problem with this.

    With a simple terminal command you can set Safari to force what would otherwise be a new window, to open instead in a new tab!

    Try clicking the scroll wheel on the link. You might have to setup the button as a cmd-click.
    Don't know about MightyMouse. Is the ball a button too?

    Sweet! I have just settled for right-clicking and choosing "New Tab" for well over a year now! I guess it just didn't bother me enough to ask and I got used to it. Thanks man!

    If you believe you can do something, you can.
    If you don't think you can do it, you can't.
    Either way, you're right!

    I'm going to update Safari and start using it, it seems like a good browser; plus, FireFox is boring.
