    Instead of opening from embedded hyperlink on the same window losing the current web page, I often like to open on to a new tab but I am not too sure how to go about it with the Safari on the iPad, seeing that is a touch screen.

    Tap and hold the link in Safari, until this appears:

    Now choose "Open in New Tab"

    The only thing you have to do now, is to go to the tab to read it.

    I have tried again and again without success. I tap it or touch it and leave the finger there, no option window would come up and the new web page just comes in to replace the current page. So I am not too sure of "tap and hold the link". I woner if there is a video to show the action.

    I've made the experience that you have to put your finger on the link and leave it there without movement, or else the website will appear, and you don't have the possibility to choose from a popup. Also, this doesn't depend on Safari settings, as far as I know.

    I'll try, I hope I can explain it better this time.

    Tap and hold the link without movement. As soon as you move your finger, even if only a little bit, the link will open instantly without showing the popup.
    When that popup appears, you can release the link and tap "Open ...".

    Thanks again!

    I can't get it to happen. I touch and hold it for very long.

    Too bad it doesn't work!

    I've tried several Safari Settings and different links, the popup always appears on my iPad.
    Is your software up to date? (6.1.3)
