New Tab in Safari!

There was a tip last week about how you can get a new tab in Firefox or Camino by double-clicking on the tab bar. I mentioned that it doesn't work in Safari. There is a plug-in that will let you do the same thing in either Safari 2 or the new Safari 3 beta. The plug-in requires SIMBL, but it is included in the package that you download. You can check out Twicetab here on MacUpdate.

I find it's easier just to use my keyboard shortcuts - I use  + T which opens up a new tab. Then don't forget the other tip, to get to the address bar quickly, just use  + L.

I have most of my common functions like this one programmed on my trackball's buttons so its only a quick click away. But its always a good thing to have more than one way of doing things.

I installed, deleted, reinstalled. It's in my Safari 3.0.1 menu as Twicetab Preferences.

I can open Twicetab Preferences and change it.

But double clicking the tab bar does nothing at all.

Tabs are not the default setting for Safari. Go to Preferences>Tabs and check "Enable Tabbed Browsing".

This doesn't seem to work for me at all.

ya, I just use +T and +L....

like said above, check preferences to make sure u've got tabbed browsing.

and as far as opening new tabs without the blank screen...I think u can make them open up to the page that you were currently on but I don't know anything about opening the home page...actually, check the preferences....I'm sure it's in there somewhere.

Having recently downloaded Safari 3 Public Beta, i.e. "Version 3.0.2 (522.12)", I installed this successfully first time.

I have the Safari 3.0.2 beta installed, and double clicking the tab bar creates a new tab without ever installing this TwiceTab program.

I'm just activating tab browsing in safari and apple+T is useful for me.. And when you want to open a link to a new tab, just hold down Command + click..
It's so easy..
