Force links to open in new tabs in Safari

13 07 2009

Enter into terminal defaults write TargetedClicksCreateTabs -bool true then restart Safari. Now when links are clicked they will open in a new tab.
To turn it off enter into terminal defaults delete TargetedClicksCreateTabs
It isn’t that scary and achieves a great result.
