I'm using Safari 6.0.5 on Mac OS X 10.8.4.

Is it possible to configure Safari so that new tabs are opened not next to the current tab but at the end? Something similar to the Firefox option browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent.

I've searched everywhere with no luck.

I'm not an OSX user, but let's try this one for the fun of it.

You will need to write a script and bind it to a key.
Here is my attempt at the script :

tell application "Safari"
    if windows is {} then
        make new document
        tell first window
            if miniaturized then
                set miniaturized to false
            end if
            make new tab at end with properties {URL:"<something>"}
            set current tab to last tab
            tell application "System Events" to tell process "Safari" to tell menu bar 1 to tell menu bar item "File" to tell menu 1 to click menu item "Open Location…"
        end tell
    end if
end tell

I am not sure that the "Open Location…" part is really necessary.

The resources I used to construct this answer from are :

Open new tab in Safari on the left Web Browsers
How to open a new window and multiple urls in Safari with apple script?

This is as far as I can go without a Mac to try it on.

There is an extension created for this case: OpenAtEnd.
