    I'm sure if this is a hugely dumb question, but it's been frustrating me for weeks. I'm coming from firefox and chrome to safari on a mac. Is there anyway to get all of the open tabs to display on the top of the page at once (small as they might get), instead of having to use the drop down menu to select or scroll through all of them?

    And then, even if I use control-tab to cycle through them, it doesn't shift all the tabs at the top over, it just makes the final tab whatever you happen to land on. I'd love to alter this behavior as well.

    Is there an extension or 3rd party ad-on that will allow me to manipulate this?

    Thanks!

    Your Mac OS is _____.

    Safari version is ______.

    My tabs get added to the top. OS 10.5.8 | Safari 5.0.5

    My Mac OS is 10.6.7

    and my Safari version is 5.0.5


    And I'm not saying the tabs aren't on the top. I'm saying they aren't all visible at the same time on the top. You have to click a drop down menu on the far right to see any more than, say, 12 tabs at once. I am looking to alter this behavior.

    Yes, I understood that. I never have that many tabs open at once, so I'm not really sure how it behaves in that circumstance.

    Why not use more than one Safari window? I mean, of those 12+ tabs, are they all related? Use one window for e-mail, one for porn, etc.
