Daring Fireball: Opening New Tabs Next to the Current Tab in Safari
“A few months ago I asked on Twitter if there was a secret preference in Safari that would change this to what I want — which is for new tabs to always open right next to the current tab. There is no such preference. I set about trying trying to figure out if this could be done using AppleScript, but I couldn’t figure it out.

“Jeff Johnson figured it out, though, and was kind enough to share the solution and explain the rather ungainly syntax required.”

To set this up:
1. Open Script Editor and paste in the code from Gruber’s site.

2. Save that script to [Home] → Library → Scripts → Applications → Safari, and name it something like “Safari - open new tab next to current.scpt”. (You might need to create the “Safari” folder there.)

3. From FastScript’s menubar icon, choose [Icon] → FastScripts → Preferences → Script Shortcuts. Locate this script within the tree view and assign it the shortcut Command+T.

[Some of these steps you inferred from: https://red-sweater.com/blog/1949/restore-safaris-downloads-keyboard-shortcut]

Opening new tabs next to the current tab in Safari
“John Gruber first points out that Safari always places new tabs on the rightmost side of its tab list. He then elegantly walks through the process of getting Safari to create new tabs just to the right of the current tab.

“It’s not trivial, but definitely interesting and worth the read. Even if this particular tab issue is not a problem for you, knowing how to create a script and assign it a command-key shortcut that overrides what’s built-in has lots of value.”

I chose to ignore that because the piece was already growing out of control, but I’ve gone back and added an objection right after the block quote.

Things like this are canaries in the coal mine regarding the state of the Mac. If even Apple doesn’t get basic fundamentals — like supporting Page Up/Down, things which should work in a scrolling view out of the box — how are we to expect any developer to?

So in Mojave's Mac App Store app, you can't scroll anything using standard keyboard keys like Page Up, Page Down, Home, End, or the space bar?

My secret theory as to why Instagram doesn’t have an iPad version is that their iPhone version is such a non-native mess that they’d have to start all over effectively.

Dealbreaker for me without tethering — a lot of what I use iPad cellular for is getting my MacBook Pro online, to be honest. Rather use iPad for tether than iPhone to save iPhone battery life.

Although that graph does show the XR “outselling” both XS and XS Max each week…

I saw that yesterday. Those XR numbers are so shockingly low it’s hard to believe. Does Mixpanel reveal their methodology?

Here’s how to create a simple Keyboard Maestro macro that opens the Services menu in any app. Then you can just type to select the service you want. (Mentioned on @thetalkshow recently…) https://t.co/YOYHKZTndp

I don’t love Lightning either but I like it better than any version of USB ever and probably more than any connector ever.

And I’d argue it’s a frustrating confusing limiting interface for switching between apps.

Control, size, branding, status quo.

Far more iPhone customers would be angered than pleased by switch to USB-C, and to what end? The last few years before all-wireless?

I didn’t mention it but it occurred to me. But to me the difference is that very simple use of Mac scales to doing more complex things smoothly. On iPad it’s more like a chasm.
