Opening Tabs using a Watir in Ruby

I'm creating additional tabs in Firefox using Watir webdriver.

require 'watir-webdriver' b =Watir::Browser.new

How to access the Open a New Tab button on the browser. Is there any way to create a new tab ?

Selenium doesn't explicitly support opening of tabs, however you can do like this:

require 'watir-webdriver'

browser = Watir::Browser.new :ff

browser.goto 'http://the-internet.herokuapp.com'

browser.link(:text, 'A/B Testing').click(:command, :shift)

browser.windows.last.use

This will open the link in a new tab (on a mac) and focus it
