Opening saved items in new tabs in Safari 5
Authored by: stevebr on Aug 16, '10 11:24:20AM

With a third-party mouse and Apple's generic 3rd-patry mouse driver, this is basically what the middle button does by default in browsers. It's been this way on OS X for a long time (certainly 10.3) regardless of browser and on other platforms as long as I can remember.

If you have an Apple Mighty Mouse, you can set up the middle button to act as "Button 3" to get this effect. IIRC, Apple's default for the middle button on that mouse toggles Dashboard or Exposť or something. I don't know if the Magic Mouse has a middle button equivalent, but if it does, it will probably let you set it to "Button 3"

This will also deliver other traditional middle button behaviours e.g., pasting selection at cursor in the Terminal.
