    In Firefox, you can set it up where in the address bar, you can type a keyword then a string and it will search for it. Like "google abcdefg" will search Google for abcdefg, "dict word" will look up word on dictionary.com, ect. Is there a way to set these up in Safari? I'm running Tiger. Thanks

    Something kind of close is AcidSearch...it works fine on Safari 2 in terms of its search bar enhancement, although the find-as-you-type aspect (which is completely unrelated to the search bar function, and yet is bafflingly included in the same plugin) doesn't work.

    Note: this is for letting you do different kinds of searches with the search bar. I don't know of a way to do different kinds of searches in Safari with the *address* bar.
