How do Mac OS X browsers handle three essential features (on top of the requisite standards compliance): Tabs, crash or quit protection, and print preview?

Browser New tab Move from tab to tab Close tab and you go… Save browser state? Print preview?
Camino Command-T Option-Command-
To next tab No No
Firefox, Mozilla Command-T Ctrl-
/-PgDn (along with Fn key on PowerBooks)
To next tab No No
IE5 No tabs No Yes
OmniWeb Command-T Command-
To next tab Yes No
Opera Command-N (Shift-)F6 To previous tab Yes Yes
Safari Command-T Shift-Command-
To next tab No No
Shiira Command-T Shift-Command-
To previous selected tab No No

Evidently, then, no single browser gives me everything I want. If Opera fixes its keystroke and tab behaviour, among other defects, it may win out.
