    How do you change the seach box in Safari (2.0.4)?
    The default search engine is google, right?
    So say I wan't to change it to YouTube for example. Can I do that?

    I'm not sure, but I've replaced it with something called Inquisitor, which is very good, and quite customisable! You should check it out...

    I'll put in another vote for Inquisitor.

    I think it searches Yahoo! by default, but you can make it search Google or Amazon or a few others, I think. I highly recommend it.

    Inquisitor looks nice, but I find it's also intrusive. I prefer AcidSearch. It's easy to add search channels too.

    Inquisitor switched me from FireFox to Safari...

    The drop-down box. I don't want it suggesting anything to me; I know exactly what I'm searching for. I just want to be able to switch rapidly between search channels and pull from a repository if I don't want to custom-add my own. Plus AcidSearch has a find-as-you-type option, too, for those who prefer it.

    I prefer acidsearch as well, you can also highlight text and use the right click to search that text in the search channel you choose.
