    Isn't there supposed to be a unified search bar?
    I don't get it. How do you use search engines in Safari?

    You know when you type in any other browser a shortcut like 'w' for wikipedia.
    So typing 'w Mozart' get me straight to the wikipedia page.
    All I can get from that safari bar is google. There also doesn't seem to be a option in context menus of search fields to create searches.

    I am trying to give Safari another chance with ML because it definitely is the smoothes renderer now. Fixed a bunch of problems with extensions.
    Some other unsolved problems I have is the tab layout. Those titles with that text are hard to read, there are no icons. Is there any way to get a tab style upgrade. I would also like on top.
    Also is it normal that safari is really quite slow with open in background. Chrome Opera you can middle click 10 links and they just open in background. It seems Safari doesn't understand the concept of background as that opening tabs seems to suck so much resources that the front tab lags and the often I have to hit it multiple times.

    Yes that is what I want.
    Still though the dedicated search box supported different search engines. Did that now completely disappear? If it is unified it should still support more than just google without the need of an extension.

    Does anybody know anything about changing color, text,.. of the UI? Is there anything like themes that could fix those too dark and hard to read tab headers?

    Is that slow background loading normal for other people or is it just on my notebook? I still have some issues with BetterTouchTool which could play into this. I won't bother exploring it unless nobody else has the same issues.
