Turn off Switch to Tab?

IS there a way to disable Switch to Tab PERMANENTLY? IT would be SLIGHTLY less annoying if it REFRESHED the old tab when it brought you to it. But for some really dumb reason, it doesn't. I don't want to have to remember to press Alt every time because I literally can't think of a single time I would ever want it.

If you uncheck "Open tabs", does that work for you?

Thanks jscher...all I could find was the posts with the first answer, but I didn't want to make it nothing. I only wanted to stop the Switch to Tabs. This seems to do the trick.
