    Not since safari 4 it isn't. Unless, that is, you want pages in your site results.

    Agreed. Used to use it, but Safari 4 pretty much solves this problem. Now if you want a REALLY awesome plugin, check out Glims.

    Seconded on Glims. Add Safari AdBlock and you've got something that can go toe to toe with Firefox.

    As I recall was some kerfuffle about inquisitor inserting affiliate links into search results involving amazon and other commercial sites.

    There was also some speculation that the developer was manipulating the order of the results to feature his affiliate links.

    I think that inserting the affiliate links was a clever way for the developer to finance a free app, but he should have been upfront about the manipulation.

    In this case the developer hid the fact that he did this until others discovered it and then his reply was along the lines of 'It's a free program and I'll do what I want with it' (the developers original reply was here http://www.newsfirex.com/blog/?p=193, but he seems to have deleted it now).
