Safari - Always open link in a new tab

Ask a question
By default Safari will open links from your emails or your downloads in a new window and this can be really annoying when working with dozen of links, you'll be rapidly submerged by a lot of Safari browser windows.

You can configure Safari to open these new links in new tabs,it's more manageable.
  • Click on the "Edit Menu" > Preferences > General tab.
  • Down in the list, next to "Open links from application", check the "in a new tab in the current window" option.
