Glims

My major frustration with safari was that it could only support Google as it's search engine, and there was no way to change this without editing Safari's coding, a risky process that crashed safari if your modified version didn't have exactly the same file size as the original.

Enter Glims, a small app with allows you to add about 20 different search engines to safari and put them in order of your preference.

Other long-awaited features include:
  • Full screen browsing 
  • Undo close tab using Cmd-Z
  • Favicons show at the top of tabs
  • Thumbnails in Google and Yahoo searches.
  • Session saving
If safari supported all the features that Glims provided, a lot fewer mac users would be switching to firefox.

If you're looking for a good Search Bar optimizer, use Inquisitor 3, it's free and it's great. I love it.

Looks great. I see where Glims got their design from...
