    Sorry, I forgot got to mention bookmarks. I used the word 'tabs' instead...

    Ok, so you know you can make ordinary bookmarks in Safari (cmd-D) Well I want to know if/how to make bookmarks that will show a list of RSS headings if I click on it, it should include a little number in brackets of the unread items or new items since previous visit.

    So it has the general look of the firefox screen that I placed above but a little number thingie like this doohickey that I found:

    My RSS bookmarks don't display the headlines in the bookmark, but you do get the number of unread items in parentheses.

    That was just a pic of what it should look like, for figurative purposes.

    EDIT: I cant get the unread guy working? AM I just supposed to wait until unread stuff comes along?

    Firefox provides RSS functionality called "Live Bookmarks", and no, I haven't found a way to get this in Safari. When adding a bookmark in Firefox, you have the option of adding it as a Live Bookmark as opposed to a normal feed. It is indeed an awesome feature, though. I use Firefox anyway.

    I know what you mean. Safari 3 is going to be awesome, so I'm excited for that in Leopard. I honestly don't have any problems with Firefox, though. I use no extensions other than AdBlock and bookmark syncing, and only have the default theme installed (the best one out there, imho. Mozilla did a great job with the FF2 theme). I'm looking forward to the native OS X browsing Firefox 3 is going to provide.

    My only complaint at the moment is that I can't find that installer to install aqua widgets in Firefox 2. I don't want to use the optimized builds, as lame as it sounds, I'm a long-time firefox fan and can't live without my Mozilla branding.
