Safari: option-click link in new window? - Mac Applications & Software

This must be a dumb question, but I am stumped. The answer may have to do with the Tabs feature, which I have also not figured out. In my older browsers I could always Option-click to open the link in a new window, but not in Safari. What is the trick?

    You will find your answer and additonal hints in: Safari->
    Preferences-> Tabs

    Additonally, make sure that you activate the Safari Status Bar:
    Safari-> View-> Status Bar

    That will allow you to view what you will be opening and where.

    Option-click downloads the link. Command-click will open the link in a
    new window, or tab, depending upon the state of the "Enable Tabbed
    Browsing" checkbox in the preferences panel.

    With tabs off it's command-click (or shift-command-click to open the
    window behind the current one). With tabs on it's command-option-click
    (to open behine) or shift-command-option-click (to open & select).

    Space Ghost: Not really a lady? Huh? Then she must have been... Wait!
    You were digging on a dude?
    Zorak: It's not what you think. Carl is part of a male mantis
    resistance movement that intercedes at the moment when the
    urge is the worst. He lured me back to his nest, where we ate
    barbeque and talked sports until the urge had passed. He...
    saved my life, and for that, I will always be grateful.
    Space Ghost: What a remarkable story! I wonder who owns the movie rights.
    Zorak: Ted Turner.
