Not sure why it took so long for so useful of a feature, but I’ve been loving it in Safari 3.1 on my Mac for the past few weeks. I opened 82 tabs in the browser during a two-hour stretch yesterday (hey… I was bored and curious… a deadly combination) so opening new tabs quick and easy-like is a plus. Instead of hitting Command-T on the keyboard, you can simply double-click any blank space in the Tab bar within Safari 3.1 and poof! you’ve got a new blank tab. I’d screen print the area I’m describing, but you probably get the idea, plus I’m at the Quackertown Quakertown, PA Starbucks with the Q1UP.

    Firefox has had this feature for some time and IE7 has the same.
    it is quite useful

  2. Opera has it too.

  3. I prefer Ctrl T to open a new tab. It’s a great shortcut.

    And Ctrl W to close a tab.

  4. Now, a better shortcut would be doubleclick a link to open it in a new tab vs in the existing window. eliminate the right click or the keyboard

    With IE7 or FF (probably others too) and a 3-button mouse, you can middle click to open a link in a new tab. Even handier.
