Show Recent Items in Snow Leopard

The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it? Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.

Crashed until I uninstalled GLIMS

I have a lot of bookmarks in folders, so when viewing bookmarks I can select some within a folder and double click them to open just some of the many bookmarks that I have in a folder.
That's no longer possible.

And to delete one from the side bar it seems I have to ctl-click and use a drop down.

MAJOR setback in functionality.

Safari 6.1 seems to be very slow, and since I installed it I have experienced two "kernel panics" -- the only times that I have ever had this problem.

Yesterday I was unable to log into my online banking site. The bank told me that they are "experiencing problems with Safari right now".

Did I say two "kernel panics"? Make that three now.

Is there an easy way to downgrade to the previous version of Safari? If not, I may need to switch to Firefox.
