I think it was Snow Leopard that was the last great release that gave big speed improvements and noticeable refinements. There have been some little things here and there over the years but I really stopped caring about most of it and have not been suckered in by the company that has become so self righteous. You do not tell people how great you are, if you are really great people know.

So true, and I agree completely, and with later macOS versions after Snow Leopard, I just got so fed up with Apple's removal of so many old small features that I used to use, and there was nothing useful with anything "new" for my use, that I finally gave up and went back and have been using Mavericks for several years now and still am. It works just fine for my use thank you, and with all the little features I used over the years all working.

Heck, I just got my wife's old iPhone 4 out of our archive drawer to use with my 711 SpeakOut cell service as I received a notice that my old Samsung GSM 2G flip-phone I have been using for years would become kaput and no longer supported at the end of December 2020.

It works very well for my use, Thank you very much, even though I keep reading that it is, along with macOS Mavericks, no longer "supported", whatever that is supposed to actually mean!!!

The later macOS Mohave is of no use to me as my mid-2011 iMac can only run High Sierra as its latest macOS version anyway.

If you have the latter selected it's telling you what it's going to do. I suspect if the former is selected you'd see the text you're accustomed to.

iPhone: Settings > Safari > Open Links : In New Tab / In Background

iPad: Settings > Safari > Open New Tabs In Background : On / Off

The text verbiage reflects your setting choice.

On your iPhone you have “In New Tab” and iPad you have “... In Background” On.

Change iPad to Off to get a consistent experience (or visa versa).

Personally, I prefer Tab on my phone (because I usually want to see it right away) and Background on the iPad (because I usually want to look at it later).

Studies indicate the brain circuit that helps us adapt to change fades with age.

As you get older you have difficulty adapting to change.

It’s unfortunate when it’s accompanied by vitriol, but that seems to have become the tone of ehMac these days... “You kids get off my lawn!”
