Safari (on mac anyways) only opens a google result of highlighted text in the same tab:

  • select some text
  • right click
  • select "google" the highlighted text

Is it possible to get the results to open in a new tab? Can't seem to find a setting for it.


From that dropdown menu you've mentioned, click on "Search with Google" with the middle mouse button, or button 3. Optionally, use CMD+click.
