A Safari plug-in! There aren’t much, but those that exist are pretty good…

Very simple, yet a much needed feature: double click on the tab bar to open a new tab!

Get Twicetab here.

    I just DL’ed it, something seems wrong, I am using a mighty mouse and it didn’t work. Any idea?

    Hmmm, I’m using a mighty mouse too, and it’s working fine. When clicking on an empty region of the tab bar, nothing happens? Well, try downloading it again, maybe that file was corrupt somehow?? Go delete it by trashing Twicetab located in User>Library>Application Support>SIMBL>Plugins>Twicetab. It should be in that spot, if it isn’t there, or you don’t have a SIMBL folder, let me know.

    After trashing it, just DL it again, and see what happens.

    It was there, I deleted it and reinstalled, when I “right-click” it on the tag-bars – it worked. Maybe I was not hitting it properly. Thanks.

    Ah, glad to hear it worked, it also might’ve been your Mighty Mouse acting up, when mine starts acting weirdly, I just turn it off and back on again.

    I, too, cannot get this app to work. I really would like to be able to “double-click” for new tabs. I am running Leopard and Safari 3, and not having any luck. I have deleted and reinstalled it several times. Please help!

    Well, I checked their homepage ( and it seems it only works with the Safari 2 or Safari 3 beta. The Safari in Leopard is no longer in beta, so I’m afraid that unless they make a new version, both you and I won’t be using Twicetab 😦

    hello, i got a problem.
    Twicetab works fine for me but now i want to delete this function.
    I deinstalled the Twicetab file but i can still open tabs with a doubleclick.

    I already deinstalled SIMBL too but this didnt help.

    Has anybody some advice?

    Did you try resetting Safari?

    On the menu bar, Safari > Reset Safari…
