Ever considered trying a different browser on your Mac? Well OmniWeb may be for you. This browser use to be shareware at the $15 US price but it has been free ever since 5.9.
This browser is feature packed and offers far more than Safari,Firefox and others. It is based on WebKit (Same as Safari).
In my testing its not that bad after you get use to the tabs on the side in a drawer. It even imported my Firefox bookmarks better than Safari did.
