Within Safari when you right click once highlighted an item you can click search google, any way to get it to search .co.uk instead of .com?

It would require some work, probably using AppleScript or Automator or a app like:

This link has some good info on installing Contextual Menu Items (CMI's) by hand and tells you where they live on your HD:

timboellis1, I recommend Inquisitor. It allows you to configure exactly what sites you want to search. By default, it automatically searches Google.com, but you can easily change that in the Safari preferences. Inquisitor also allows you to add multiple(I don't know a limit) sites to automatically search while you type. I hope this helps.

I use this program too, it works flawlessly in safari and is a great little aid.

How? A search of the web (via Google, of course ) and a search of Apple.com didn't turn up any easy solutions.

ToddG, go to the Safari preferences, select the Search tab, and change the source to another locale of Google or Yahoo, or click Edit Sites and change it to what you want.

Come on ... you're teasing me now right?

This is what I get when I choose Safari->Preferences



There is no search tab.

You might have an old vesion of Inquisitor. You might want to try downloading the newest version. It should look like this:

I don't have Inquisitor. Mystery solved. :ninja:

I took your earlier statement (quoted by me above) to mean that the default search engine could be changed without Inquisitor. My bad, sorry.
