When we are surfing the internet, we can open many tabs. In general, when we are browsing a site with multiple links, we can click on them to open them in different tabs in the background which we will see later. Alternatively, we can configure Safari so that when we open a new tab it automatically becomes the active tab.
The importance of tabs and how to open them
Managing tabs, and web browsing habits in general, are quite personal, so there are options for you. Safari meets our needs is always welcome. By default, the system is as follows: when we open a new tab on the iPhone, it becomes the active tab; when you do it on iPad and Mac, it’s in the background.
You cannot change this setting on iPhoneHowever, on iPhone and iPad, yes. We can do it by following these steps:
- We open Safari on our Mac.
- On the menu Safari we choose preferences.
- We enter the tab Eyelashes.
- We activate or deactivate When a new tab or window opens, bring it to the foreground.
In the iPad the system is very similar, we are doing it:
- We open the app Settings on our iPad.
- We entered Safari.
- We deactivate or activate Open new tabs in 2D.
On iPad, just tap any Safari link with two fingers to open it in a new tab. Useful no? pic.twitter.com/eahr5aYils

As simple as that. With this setting, we can configure Safari on our devices to handle new tabs exactly as it suits us best. And if at some point we change our mind enough repeat the above steps and change the setting again
It is clear that we all have our own way of surfing the web. Either to make the iPhone, iPad, and Mac behave the same with the new tabs or to adapt to our usage patterns, if we need it that way, we can change the way new tabs are opened.
