    ...and I have a couple questions/need some help. I recently got a new mbp, and coming from windows, I've always used firefox. So I started using it on my mbp and have been using it for a couple of months now. I decided to try out safari, as I've heard it's faster/more stable/displays text better in os x. I'm having some problems with the switch though. It seems to be lacking a lot of things from firefox that I used all the time.
    is there any way in safari to:
    -close tabs with the scroll wheel of your mouse?
    -have google suggestions when searching with the search bar up top?
    -start searching for a word on a page as soon as I start typing, instead of hitting command+f first?
    -single click to highlight the web address instead of triple click or clicking the little icon on the left?
    I'm hoping these things are possible, or I might be sticking with firefox :/

    Stability is about the same, but the rest is true.

    Not that I know of.


    Again, not that I am aware.
