Dennis Stevense posted a great little Terminal hack which enables single window browsing for the latest version of Safari. If you’re running 3.1 you can type in the following command to make all “target=’_blank'” links open in a new tab instead of in a new window:


defaults write com.apple.Safari TargetedClicksCreateTabs -bool true

This is one of my favorite Firefox features, so I’m pretty happy to see it available in Safari, even if it’s under a hidden setting.
