    Hi guys,
    I'm a Mac-boy for over a month now but I suffer from one but damn really important functionality for me. I'm used to Opera and Firefox.
    When I start to type in the address bar something like "face" it shows me everything with "face......" in the tittle, but Firefox for instance showed me things like "ScarFACE" and I didn't have to type all the phrase so carefully, I could type something like "arface" and it showed me the right choices. That's what I miss now. I could type "app wor" and it showed me "Apple is worth" from my history or bookmarks. It's really annoying, is there a tweak or something?

    Are you talking about Safari? I'm not experiencing that in exactly the way that you're describing.

    For instance, if I visit I see that the title of the page includes the word "Trial" and it's not in the URL. Now, I leave that page and type "trial" in the address bar I definitely get the site in my results. It's also down there if I type "rial". Two partial words, such as "crim att" for "Criminal Attorney", in the search field does throw it off. Just "crim", however, gives me the page in the results.

    I have Safari>Preferences>Search>Include Safari Suggestions checked.
