I am a new Safari user, and I want the browser to open a new tab instead of the current tab when I select an address and click "Go to address", just like in Chrome. Can I achieve this without plugin?
You can use added hot-keys to make a whole set of different actions happen when you click a link.
This is the way I have mine set in Safari Preferences…
This way, a simple click will open the link in the current page,
Cmd ⌘ /click will open it in a new Tab but not activate it &
Cmd ⌘ Shift ⇧ /click will open it in a new Tab & also bring it to the front.
Setting the first dropmenu to 'Always' will also set a new Tab to be opened if you select the URL in another application & right-click select 'Open URL'
