Switch a Safari 'load in page' action to a 'load in tab' action Web Browsers
By accident, I clicked a link in Safari instead of command-clicking it to open it in a new tab. However, whilst it was loading, I command-clicked the link again, and it stopped loading in the current tab and opened in a new tab instead.

[robg adds: I cannot duplicate this behavior, though the author has confirmed it, and it works on a friend's machine. I'm not sure if it has to do with the speed of the connection or something else, but it simply doesn't work on my machine...]

Switch a Safari 'load in page' action to a 'load in tab' action

Actually, ANY time you click on a link while a previous link was
loading, it will stop the first one, and begin loading the second
one. It has nothing to do with tabs, new windows, etc....

All it does is say, "Wait. Changed my mind - cancel what I just
did and do this instead." This has been available in Safari since
day one, I believe, and I think works in other browsers as well.

The caveat is that you have to do it before the old page loads....
(Of course!)

That said, this feature is nice if you forget to command-click.
