When I use Chrome I like the feature that enables me to open Chrome with a list of websites I always want to open up once I use it.
Is this feature available in Safari?
Yes, but the sites you want to use must be saved in a folder in your bookmarks.
Once you've bookmarked the sites all in the same folder (the only contents of the folder should be these sites), go to Safari -> Preferences -> General. Click the Choose Tabs Folder... item in the New windows open with: menu and select your folder.
New windows will open with each of your websites in tabs.
