Single window mode for Safari

I use Firefox (with my XP machine) with tab browser extension which has a single window mode option. This forces new windows to appear in the one window.

On my iBook, I set Safari to use tabs, but new windows still pop up (from some links).

Is there a way to force new windows to appear as tabs within the single Safari window? (yes I know that I can click to have the link open as a new tab, but I'd prefer to have this the default option, rather than haveing to remember to hit the key combination to open the link as a new tab).

From memory, I hold the control and/or shift key when clicking on the link to force it to a tab.

It's open source. Now you can dive in and change it.

Or post in bugzilla or where feature requests are made.

You referred to bugzilla in your reply.

Firefox is okay, I love it.

It is the Apple Safari browser I am interested in configuring.
