    Here is my wish list for Safari:

    1) Improved Speed
    2) Improved compatibility
    3) Enhanced stability
    4) Cover-flow option for bookmarks, history, and downloads
    5) Multiple search providers available from drop-down in Search Box (Amazon, Apple Store, IMDB, Wikipedia, Custom)
    6) Search Box auto-complete/suggestions
    7) "Mute/Volume" button for web audio
    8) Downloads in drawer or tab instead of pop-up windows. Ability to search, quick view, and launch downloads within said area. Ideally, it would be contained in the "collections" section with history and bookmarks.
    9) Ability to view/use Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Pages, Keynote, Numbers and other files within the browser (similar to current PDF ability)
    10) Phishing Filter

    What about y'all?

    I know that an update to Safari will address speed, but what about the other features?

    2) Multiple search providers available from drop-down in Search Box (Amazon, Apple Store, IMDB, Wikipedia, Custom)
    3) Search Box auto-complete/suggestions

    5) Downloads in drawer or tab instead of pop-up windows. Ability to search, quick view, and launch downloads within said area. Ideally, it would be contained in the "collections" section with history and bookmarks.
    6) Ability to view/use Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Pages, Keynote, Numbers and other files within the browser (similar to current PDF ability)
    7) More prominent user interface for EV SSL
    8) Option for domain highlighting
    9) Zoom
    10) Plug-in manager
    11) Option to reopen last closed tab
    12) Ability to drag tabs to Bookmarks Bar

    You could just download Firefox which pretty much does all of that with the addition of various addons.
