    I changed mine to cmd-alt-~ and cmd-alt-z to change between tabs, it's so much more convenient for me.

    Is there another way to create a new tab apart from right clicking the tab bar? For example in IE7 there is a small tab that you can click on to create a new tab.

    Apple-T, or hold down Apple (usually called 'command') when you click on a link and it will be opened in a tab.

    System preferences>Keyboard and Mouse>Keyboard shortcuts>then click the +
    select the app that you want to add a shortcut to.

    Type the msnu title for the shortcut. Eg:In safari you want to change cmd-M to something else (minimize) so type in 'Minimize' (no quotes) because thats how it shows on the menu bar. This is case sensitive.

    Type the new shortcut Eg: "cmd-shift-f" but actually pressing the keys you want.

    Click OK

    Done! Shortcut will be changed next time you open the app.

    System Prefernces - Keyboard & Mouse - Keyboard Shortcuts and click the plus arrow. Select Safari from the drop down application and type 'Select Next Tab' or Select Previous Tab' in the Title box. Then type your shortcut in the last box and voila!! You'll probably need to quit and re-open safari though.

    EDIT: Beaten to it!

    tabs

    I have SafariStand installed and have it set in Stand preferences to scroll tabs using the period(right) and comma(left) keys. I just noticed this yesterday, funny you should ask... cheers.
