Not that I've seen, but one that I tested that didn't work was SafariBlock.Is there a central list of what plugins, hacks, extensions, etc, do and do not work with Safari 3?
I have not had any luck googling one. I use...
Taboo (won't need)
Safaristand (not sure if I'll need...the only thing I use it for is force link -> new tab)
And of course Flash, Perian and F4M inside QT, and if possible DivX web player.
Actually, it looks like SafariBlock does work on Safari 3 as of very recently:I've been a long time AcidSearch user, and that doesn't work. I'm also having a few favicon bugs, and Safari Icon Manager is useless because Apple completely re-did the way Safari handles them.
SafariStand does have a version for Safari 3, but I haven't used it.
It hasn't changed much, but maybe it'll work for you? Hopefully, anyway, Pozytron will get AcidSearch working also. It's a very popular plugin, so I'm sure you're not the only one waiting for it.I tried Inquisitor some time ago and didn't like it...don't remember why. But yes, maybe I'll give it another shot.
I don't know...I'm playing with it right now and I'm managing. I guess I just find the "search-as-you-type" stuff busy and distracting. Probably the same reason I'm not a huge fan of Spotlight. Turning off auto-complete helps, but it's still a bit much for my simple brain.It hasn't changed much, but maybe it'll work for you? Hopefully, anyway, Pozytron will get AcidSearch working also.

I did that right away too. Since you're used to AcidSearch, what you might do is turn the number of suggestions and websites way down, and then add a bunch of search engines to the list. That'll give you something that does a lot of what Acidsearch does (you type in, and if you want the Safari answer, you hit enter, and otherwise, you click on the engine you want to search). If it allowed you, you could almost go to zero web hits / suggestions and then just have a list of alternate search engines!Turning off auto-complete helps, but it's still a bit much for my simple brain.
Hmmm, interesting. Is this 3.0 v42? Well, that's too bad. I'm using Inquisitor and find as you type quite regularly. I finally also installed Safari 3 on my iMac.Well, mkrishnan, I've given up on Inquisitor yet again. The find-as-you-type aspect was causing brief pauses and beachballs on my PowerBook every time I typed in the search field.
Yep, it was the newest version. It is too bad, because it had some nice aspects to it. I turned everything as far down as I could (one result for each category and turned off including the search history), but it was still causing problems, and they seemed to be getting worse as time went on. Guess my PowerBook's too old to handle it.Hmmm, interesting. Is this 3.0 v42? Well, that's too bad.
I'm not so sure it's Safari... 3.0.2 honestly is *at least* as stable as the last 2.x build for me, if not more stable. It's been very reliable. Are you sure you don't have something installed on it that's creating the instability? Or maybe some bad preference files or something?Since my work is heavily dependent on using the internet, I've switched to Camino, for now, though if they fix Safari, I'll switch back in a nano second, because I love the look.
For anyone who missed it... F4M is the *official* Microsoft solution for WMP at this point. They themselves made an agreement with the people who make F4M to offer it free to Mac users on their (MS's) behalf, and discontinued WMP. So yes, anyone who is still using WMP should almost certainly upgrade, unless their other software is also all out of date, and they intend to stay that way.
