Recommend an online twitter client for me. desired features listed inside

I am looking for an online twitter client that fits my needs, but I hate searching through the endless lists of them. Can you recommend one with the features I want and/or a website with reviews that are not just marketing spin?

Features I want:
*has to be online - ie. not a downloaded app/program/etc
*automatically updates feed
*displays pictures/video inline
*alerts to DM and @mentions (or can display in a separate column)
*auto expands short urls
*auto shorten urls
*ability to save searches
*easy reply/retweet, etc

I have been using brizzly.com but the updated interface makes it really difficult to actually type in tweets and I am sick of it. The new twitter is almost right, but not quite.

What else is out there?

CRAP. Early Monday morning no coffee reflexes.

Take a look at Tweenky. I think it's got many of these things, but I don't use it for a lot either now that new twitter is out on twitter.com.

I think hootsuite fits most of your criteria.

Seesmic Web is the right answer. I moved from Brizzly to Seesmic, myself, and it's excellent.
