    Just curious on this. When I mistype a website address in my Safari address bar, it takes me to a horrible search results page powered by Yahoo and heavily branded by my broadband provider, even though Google is my default search provider.

    Is there a way to make this take me to a google search for what I put in the address bar instead of the crappy branded yahoo page?

    Sounds like your ISP is using Proxy servers. You would need to talk to your ISP about that.

    ^You are exactly right. In my research I found that out, and determined it was too much hassle to worry with.

    you download SafariSIA

    you create a new "shortname" for google's feeling lucky

    you set the url to
    Code:
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%@&btnI
    and make sure this new shortname is set as default (clicking the left empty box until a dot appears)

    then anything you type in the address bar will automatically use feeling lucky
