    The only thing these days keeping me locked to chrome are the pinned tabs and favicons in the tabs.

    any plug ins/extensions etc for safari that accomplish this?

    Same thing here from a Firefox user. I'm trying to like Safari with Yosemite, but I miss pinning tabs. In addition, it is damn hard to tell what tab you're on. It would be nice if they weren't so "flat" and bland.

    It is quick though.

    the most annoying thing about safari is this, no idea what tab is what and you you still can't pin tabs #fail

    Thats funny Favicons in tabs (and bookmarks bar) is one of the reasons I don't like chrome, It just looks too cluttered.

    I do like pin tabs though, but I couldn't find any way to enable it in Safari.

    I don't think it's compatible with Yosemite. At least it wasn't when I first installed it some days ago.

    No you have not.

    Glims are not yet updated for the official 10.10-release.
    It did work on the beta-releases duo

    You can still install it, but almost nothing works with Safari 8, Also very buggy

    seriously? i use it for:
    open new tab to the right of current tab
    key commands to move thru tabs

    these things def work. i used glims thru the last few betas, & installed again after a clean install of final 10.10.

    please don't tell me what i am (or am not) doing.

    not the same thing. chrome let's you pin a tab by making the icon for the tab very small. for example, my gmail always lives on the left of my browser next to the traffic lights.

    the icon you're talking about would result in a new tab being opened and waiting for the page to load. it's a shortcut, not a constantly open and ready to use webapp.

    ----------

    does glims let you pin tabs? i don't see that as a feature mentioned on their website.

    TabLock

    Does old TabLock work with Yosemite and is it comparable to what you'd like?

    TabLock seems to work in Yosemite (Thanks!) but I'm also looking for a way to pin tabs. Any other suggestions? I primarily want the tabs pinned so they take up less space in the tabs bar.

    Have you tried the minimal tabs and workspaces in OmniWeb?

    From the opening post:

    Maybe of interest:

    [​IMG]

    – that's a screenshot of Chrome App Launcher.

    Have you tried Fluid? (As a user of Firefox, you might be familiar with Mozilla Labs Prism.)

    Links available on request.

    Does Chrome for Mac support the app launcher now?

    Yes, since December 2013. Chrome App Launcher is amongst the answers under Web apps on OSX?. Some of its content will launch in Chrome – not in a separate app. From the screenshot attached I assume that Google chooses to use a Windows-like shortcut overlay (an arrow, pointing northeast) for icons of apps that will not run separately.

    Fluid, Chrome App Launcher and the like … treating a page as a separate browser will not suit everyone, but it is a way of saving space in the tab bar of the main browser; and then you can do pin-like things with each such page/app. Integrated with Safari, if you like.

    It seems that the separate launcher that you can put in the Dock is still not supported natively. It doesn’t just put Chrome Apps in there, but also self-contained websites. What Fluid does on OS X is what Chrome does itself on Windows and Linux. Odd that it’s still not supported.
