Safari - first impressions

I thought that I might give it a shot after all so I installed it. First impressions:

- it's a memory hog! 4 sites in 4 tabs consumes a whopping 210MB, while Firefox 3 beta 4 for the same sites consumes "only" 74MB

- the UI is ugly

- scroll wheel doesn't work properly in bookmarks

- close tab X button on the left !?!

- As I don't have mouse gestures, I often right-click and choose back. If I happen to have the cursor over a word, (quite likely), safari chooses to select the word and only select search with google or copy. WTF? default browser isn't changing.
