    Just got a new MBP and figured I'd give Safari a try. I'm usually a Firefox user and my biggest gripe with Safari, other than the lack of addons, is not being able to navigate to the corresponding tab with CMD + 1, 2, 3 etc. Anyone know of a way round this?

    I know you can configure keyboard shortcuts in System Prefs, but you need to know the exact menu command you wish to change.

    Also, have many people had luck with GreaseKit (Grease Monkey alternative).
    Cheers

    control + tab moves from window to window inside of Safari.

    You can also use Cmd-Shift and the square bracket keys.
    Not so easy as Control-Tab, but works in some other applications too (e.g. Terminal, where Control-Tab = Tab = autocomplete-type-thing, and in Coda the website code editor)

    Yeah I know you can navigate that way, it's just so much quicker to navigate directly to the tab you want with the CMD + # key. I guess I'll just have to switch back to FF or Chrome.
    Cheers
