The features I really can't live without these days are shortcuts, where you can take any search box and access it with a keyword, so you can type "imdb Johnny Depp" or what have you in the address box, and the tabs, which you can drag all around and rearrange and open in the foreground or the background in a variety of ways depending on how you click the link. I also like the site-specific preferences when for some reason I find myself reading a site that 8-point dark blue on black (usually shameful pleasure fansites ;).
