How To Use Tabbed Browsing In Safari - Full Step by Step Guide

Tabbed browsing is a really convenient feature of web browsers. Nowadays, you do not need to have several browser windows open at the same time. Tabbed browsing allows you to get a much smarter and more efficient browsing experience. With tabbed browsing you can open several web pages at once in a single browser window. This allows you to easily switch between open pages. OS X has an elegant and efficient interface, and the same goes for Apple's default web browser, Safari.

Safari offers configurable and tabbed navigation functionality. Tabbed browsing within Safari lets you control how and when a tab opens. You can also use several related keyboard and mouse shortcuts. This is a brief guide on how to make the most of the use of tabbed browsing in Safari.
First, open Safari and click on the Safari menu, which is in the upper left corner. When the drop-down menu appears, click on the Preferences option. When the preferences dialog box is displayed, it will be superimposed on your browser window. Click on the Tabs icon. The first option will give you a drop-down menu with the label Open pages in tabs instead of windows. Within this menu, you will see three options.
Never: if you select this option, when you click on a link to open a new window, a separate Safari window will open.
Automatically: when this option is selected, clicking on a link to open a new window will open a new tab in most cases. Safari will try to open a tab instead of a new one, however, it may not always be successful.
Always: when this is selected, clicking on a link to open a new window will always enable a new tab. Safari will always override all settings to forcefully open a new tab each time.
The Tab Preferences dialog box also has two check boxes, each one has its own tabbed scan settings, these are;
Command-click opens a link in a new tab: this option is enabled by default. Provides a keyboard shortcut (COMMAND (APPLE) + MOUSE CLICK) to force a specific link to be opened in a new tab.
When a new tab or window is opened, make it active: when enabled, a new tab or window will automatically focus as soon as it opens.
Also in the Tabs Preferences dialog, some keyboard and mouse shortcut combo are listed;
COMMAND + MOUSE CLICK: open a link in a new tab.
COMMAND + SHIFT + MOUSE CLICK: open a link in a new tab and activate it.
COMMAND + OPTION + MOUSE CLICK: open a link in a new window.
COMMAND + OPTION + SHIFT + MOUSE CLICK: opens a link in a new window and converts it into the active window.
Once you have established these preferences to your liking, you are ready to browse the Internet. Now you can enjoy an elegant, less crowded browsing experience.
