    You have propably noticed that when you type an URL in Safari, it automatically suggests matching URL's to the user? That's all fine and dandy, all broswers do that. But what Safari does is that it also suggests URL's that I have newer visited. If I want to visit macrumors.com, and start typing "ma...", it suggest mac.com (IIRC), and I have never visited that URL.

    Is there a way to prevent Safari from force-feeding those Apple-affiliated URL's?

    There are a number of pre-installed bookmarks (different for different language settings) that also are used for the type-ahead function.

    So, delete those bookmarks and you should be fine. :)

    Yeah - that's rather annoying. My solution was to throw out all the preinstalled bookmarks that I didn't want and that fixed it for me iirc. I think they're mostly placed in the folders called "shopping", "hardwaredevelopers" and "software developers".

    So it takes them from bookmarks? Well, I have to take a look at those then. Thanks :)!
