Make Safari Open Links in New Tab [Terminal Tip]

28 02 2009

One of the major gripes I have with Safari is that when you click a link, it opens the page in a new window. I find this totally throws me off and I end up with a bunch of windows and a cluttered mess. Luckily, there’s a quick workaround.

First, quit Safari by going to Safari>Quit Safari (or ⌘Q). Next, open up the Terminal, which can be found in Applications>Utilities>Terminal.app. Then all you have to do is copy the following text and hit enter.

defaults write com.apple.Safari TargetedClicksCreateTabs -bool true

Once you hit enter, you can quit the Terminal and relaunch Safari. Now you will notice that all licked links open in tabs instead of new windows!

Cool Mac Apps

26 04 2008

I stumbled on to this cool web site, Donelleschi Software, that has developed some really handy little applications: Sapiens, Sticky Windows, Filegazer and DockFun!. All of the apps are Shareware, so there is a demo available, but it nicely reminds you to please purchase it. Check all of the applications out here.

Note: Filegazer and DockFun! do NOT work with Leopard.
