Firefix-style tab control in Safari?

Hi all,

I currently use Firefox, but wouldn't mind taking a stronger look at Safari. One thing that is instantly annoying to me, however, is the tab management on Safari.

With Firefox, I can hit Command+1, Command+2, etc and switch between the first tab, the second tab, etc. If I do this on Safari, it instead gives me the first, second, third links on my shortcut bar.

I know you can use Command+Shift+Arrow Keys to switch between tabs, but is there a way to configure Safari to emulate Firefox's behaviour?

Edit: Oops. Obviously I meant firefOx, not firefIx. My bad.
