Navigating Safari 4 tabs with Firefox shortcuts?

Looking for a way to use Firefox keyboard shortcuts with Safari 4 on the Mac

I'm trying to ditch Firefox (which acts as if I'm doing some type of fancy 3D rendering everytime I open up more than a few tabs) but find myself lost without the ability to switch to a specific tab with Command - #, # being the number of the tab.

I know that in Safari 4, it is Command + Shift + { or } to go left or right through tabs, but I'm really partial to the Firefox way of doing things. Currently, Command + # in Safari takes me to a specific bookmark from the navigation bar...

So -- is there any way to change this behavior in a secret settings panel or with a 3rd party app? (btw, I'm on a Mac w/ Leopard).

Thanks for any suggestions

Not sure if TinkerTool will do it, but it does lots of things like that. Good luck!

Just chiming in to say I'd love to know the answer to this question as well. I'm so comfortable with Firefox tab navigation that I can't use Safari - I keep losing my current page by accident when I think I'm just Command-#-ing over to another tab. It seemed like it be a trickier fix, if Safari internally doesn't even think of its tabs sequentially...

I don't have a Mac, so I can't do this, but I found here that

This local URL will give you a comprehensive list of all the keyboard shortcuts supported in Safari:

So, if you're on a Mac, theoretically you should be able to click here to see a list of keyboard shortcuts. Someone will have to check for me.

I just checked -- TinkerTool does not do this.
