Better Safari Tabs

Thanks to this MacUser article and the just-released Safari 3.1, I finally have the tab behavior I want and expect. Now when I hit the “V” hot key in Google Reader, the article opens up in a new tab just like Firefox. Awesome!

To try this yourself, merely cast the following spell and restart Safari:

defaults write TargetedClicksCreateTabs -bool true

Update: It seems that I don’t have the behavior I expect after all. New links indeed open in a new tab, but a foreground tab. I often “queue up” a bunch of pages to read, so I prefer to open all my links in background tabs. Doh.
