Reasons I cannot ditch Firefox

I’ve been a loyal Firefox user since the “Pheonix” days.  Throughout Firefox’s existence, it has seemed (to me) the brower’s greatest strength was also it’s downfall…plugins.  I’m a plugin (extension, add-on, whatever you may call it) junkie.  But it seemed that once I had Firefox loaded up with a dozen or so of my favorites, it started to get “wonky”, as a co-worker of mine would describe it.

Since I made the switch to OS X over the past year, I’ve noticed that Firefox doesn’t zip along quite as fast on OS X as Safari does.  So over the past few weeks, I’ve been trying to use Safari more…but it just hasn’t worked out.  Safari seems to be the antithesis of Firefox when it comes to customization/extension.  Yes, I’m aware of PimpMySafari, but it feels forced due to the lack of proper extension support in Safari.

The 3 features I seem not to be able to live without are:
