    I use google often, especially for its gmail and documents. So I make http://www.google.se/ my home page where I am logged in to google and can access these quickly by one click. But I get a warning pop up that says "Are you sure you want to change your home page to Google Search?", explaining that you can use safari's search field. But what exactly is safari's search field? Its not the bar that the url appears in, as when I type search words in it I get the "website not found" message.

    The Safari Search field is the search bar to the right of the address bar. It traditionally says Google in it.

    Hi,

    if you use Google search a lot, I recommend using Inquisitor. It replaces the Google box and is way better than the default.

    Thank you, I've now installed Inquisitor and it works well.
