    Hi all... I'm a long time Firefox user, who recently bought a MBA.

    On OSX, I have had absolutely no issue with Firefox, it's fast, reliable, etc. The only reason I would like to switch is bookmarks/reading list sync with my phone.

    That being said, there are a few roadblocks preventing me from switching:

    1) I use the Firefox search bar (cmd+K) to Google search for things, and use the Tab button to go down the list to get to things faster. This does not seem possible on Safari -- I either have to awkwardly use my pinky to use the down arrow, use the cursor, or type out more of the search term.

    2) More importantly, I use cmd+# to switch immediately to the tab I want. On Safari, it seems as though you can only cycle through tabs (not switch to one directly) by moving your hand in an awkward position and hitting ctrl+tab

    3) Pinned tabs

    These things may seem minor to some, but they are a big part of my workflow that speeds things up. I have googled around and could not find answers, so please let me know if these are possible on Safari.

    Thanks in advance

    1. Hit command-L to go to the search bar and start typing then arrow down to pick the search you ant.

    2. shift-command-left/right arrow to jump through tabs, but no way to go directly to specific tab I know of.

    3. I don't any way to do that in Safari.
