    I've just been wondering about two things in these different apps and I was wondering if anyone could help me:

    1) In Safari is there any way to change Safari's use of google.com to google.co.uk (regional). I love the way that when you highlight some text and right click it you can simply search for it in Google however I'd much prefer it if I could change it to use Google UK. The same goes for the Google search bar in the top right hand corner.

    2) How can I use iChat? Do I have to pay for it? Do I have to get a .mac membership? I really don't want to pay a monthly amount for something I wouldn't use. I already pay for a good mail account, hosting, etc, etc. Can I sign up for a free AIM account instead of paying for .mac or do you have to be using AOL's services for AIM. Again, not an option.

    If anyone can answer these questions for me that'd be awesome!!
