Force 'new window' links to open in new tabs in Safari
Authored by: luhmann on Mar 26, '08 11:03:52PM

In Firefox I have the Google search box set to open search results in a new tab, but I don't know how to make Safari do this. In Safari 3 it seemed I could do this by holding down the "command" key, but since 3.1 I seem to have lost this functionality.

Command-click/Google Preferences

I think you'll find that Safari version 3.1 (build 5525.13) works fine for doing what you need, luhmann. Check your Safari prefs once again in the Tabs section.

Also, if for some reason you might want Google to open clicked results URLs in a new window by default, that is a Preference setting that is found with _Google_ itself. Go to and click on the Preferences link to the right of the search box and you'll see a check box for "Open search results in a new browser window." Of course, that can always be overridden with a simple Command-click to open the result in a new _tab_ instead, as has been mentioned ad infinitum on this thread.
