Even more features

I can point out a couple more great features that I've been using, relating to the toolbar and the sidebar.

Toobar: You can add a "print" button, which is sorely lacking from the unadulterated Safari. You can also add an action button that lets you perform these actions: instantly copy the URL, the title, or the URL's html tag; show related cookies and/or subresources (like images) for the current page; other stuff.

Sidebar: If you don't have so many tabs open that you can't see some whitespace in the sidebar, you can just double-click anywhere in the whitespace to open a new tab. This obviates the need for a "new tab" button in the toolbar. By right- or control-clicking on a tab, you can do a few things including "mark" it with a checkmark; you can then choose to close all marked or unmarked tabs (and do other things I haven't tried yet) from the same contextual menu.

The URL-field searches are nice, as Rob mentioned, but I've found it hard to add new ones. I succeeded in creating one for VersionTracker but not for 43Folders, for instance; not sure why.

Almost forgot! You can also DRAG LINKS to an empty part of the sidebar and it will open in a new tab BEHIND the current tab(s). I use this ALL the time, especially when reading an RSS-feed list in Safari: I drag the posts I want to read to the sidebar, then they're all set up to look at when I'm finished looking through everything in the feed list.

Very nice.
