In Safari, how can I prevent any links from opening their pages in new tabs?

I would like all links to be totally under my control and always have this behaviour:

  • click: open in current tab, add to history and back button
  • cmd click: open in new tab, but keep focus on current tab
  • cmd shift click: open in new tab and focus it

This is the default behaviour of all links unless they are target="_blank", then they always open in new tab and I can't figure out how to force them to open in the current tab.
