Safari History Problem with Google Searches
Has anyone else noticed that if you open Google search results in a new tab/window, the results in your Safari history are displayed as:
Others also seem to have this issue, some dating back 1-2 years.
One suggestion I read said to turn off Google instant, but that hasn't fixed the problem.
Has anyone fixed this? Or is it time to just admit to ourselves that Safari has been ruined and move on to Chrome already?
I'm using Safari Version 5.1.3 (7534.53.10) in Lion, but had this problem with 5.1 in Snow Leopard too.
Appreciate any help.

Yes, I understand that, but other browsers, like Firefox and Chrome will resolve the redirect and log the history with the final address and appropriate title.
In fact, Safari does this correctly if you open the Google search result in the current tab - which is of no use when I frequently cmd+shift then click out a bunch of results into new tabs.

For anyone with this same problem, there is a solution out there:
(You can download a safari extension for .com and .co.uk google there.)
var links = document.getElementsByClassName('l'); for(l in links) if (links[l].onmousedown) links[l].removeAttribute("onmousedown");
Thankyou nowonmai and tylerkaraszewski of metafilter!

Thank you so much for that plug in!
This page is the final one that will have that (no title) entry in my history

If you change the first line (in the script posted):
var links = document.getElementsByClassName('l');
var links = document.querySelectorAll("h3.r a");
