How to best get Safari...
I wanted to share how I got my Opera web Browser to look like Safari since most guides I've seen are mainly for Firefox. So here it is:

1. Get the Opera browser. It's fast, secure, and beats crap out of Internet Explorer and to some extent Firefox. Here: www.opera.com/

2. Get these excellent safari skins for it (they have oneclick setups):

Expedition:

iOpera Safari Look (also get the toolbar setup from here):
http://www.demuths.de/iopera/data/00000006.htm
3. Install Windowblinds and get the Tiger Safari skin by Toyo Moyo.

4. Apply the skin on a per-application basis for Opera.exe.

5.Get the Toggle Menu and Dropdown Menu buttons from here and drag them on to the standard toolbar in order to replace the ungainly menu bar with a nice compact button.

6. Type "opera:config" in the URL bar. In the window, go to the "User Prefs" section (somewhere at the bottom) and in it find a value named "Title". In the text field, type "Safari" and click on save settings.

7. Arrange the toolbars of Opera as you want them to be (the toolbar setup is a must for this).

That's it! You've now got a Safari skinned Opera in less than seven steps. A miracle!! (though still not a perfect one ). Here's a screen of it on my computer...

Re: How to best get Safari...
I'd do that with my Opera theme but I'd need to find the white Tiger theme. i should of made my own tutorial for this, several months ago I had my Opera looking exactly like Safari, which made me happy since I hate Firefox and all its bugs.

@Khalua, Thanks for the comment.
@DMXell, I also hate Firefox's little glitches. Otherwise it's a good browser and open source to boot. But till it gets everything that Opera has, I will use Opera.

This is my first ever post of this type so I might have missed something. Feel free to add suggestions and more tips to make it a full-blown Opera-->Safari thread. That would be useful for new users, as it would have been for me, some months ago

Re: How to best get Safari...
Well, aside from the 188 security flaws that, unless Mozilla completely reprograms the extensions and thus making all current ones not usable to fix these flaws, it needs integrated email, needs to load faster, needs to be a faster browser in general, needs to look better and it needs to load pages better. That's quite a load that I doubt Mozilla will fix anytime soon.

Here's another very usable Safari Unified skin that I came across during my sleepy wanderings on the internet. This would go very well for a leopard look,
