Use AcidSearch and add a channel for Wikipedia. I'm not sure how well it's been tested on Intel-based Macs, but it works fine on my PowerBook.

While bumping is not against MR rules, we frown upon it . If you really want to code a Safari plugin you could start by reading the Webkit Plugin Programming Topics. You'll need to learn Objective-c (if you don't know it already), but I'm not really sure you can add GUI elements to Safari's main window. Most Safari plugins I've seen only work inside a webpage, but like I said, I'm not sure...
