Doesn't work with me (10.6.1), this is the error I get opening safari with the plugin installed:
"SIMBL ERROR
Safari 4.0.3 (v6531.9) has not been tested with the plugin Keywurl (null) (v1.4.0). As a precaution, it has not been loaded. Please contact the plugin developer (not the SIMBL author) for further information."

The new beta 5 version generates an error for me with Safari 4 final. Sees Keywurl as v 1.4.0 and gives the warning window upon launch that it hasn't been loaded.

Changing MaxBundleVersion from 5528 to 5530 in Info.plist will eliminate the warning dialog so Keywurl will load, but 1.4b5 is incompatible with Safari 4 final and broke URL processing in the address field when I tested it. At least until it's fixed I'm satisfied switching to SafariStand Quick Search shortcuts; haven't noticed any issues with SS 4.0L166.

Interesting that a new release came out the day after Safari 4 final was released, but not compatible. Probably just an oversight by the dev.

Actually 1.4b5 was released on Mar 16, adding (or fixing?) Safari 4 beta support, as you can see on the developer site. MacUpdate was slow to post the update.

Aha… that explains it. thanks for the heads up. I dropped a line to the dev, erroneously thinking he released a new version.

Just a heads up that the current version is not compatible with Safari 4 final. The dev is pretty responsive to updates so I am sure it will be updated shortly.

Superb free plugin. Makes Safari a joy to use. I've been using it for months.

Really improves browsing experience. Stays out of your way.

Something similar in Safari Stand which I've just started using for the highlighted source code.

simply amazing! neat, simple, and useful... i used to be on sogudi ages ago, but after getting a new macbook, i couldn't manage to get it installed on leopard. i've tried inquisitor, which was nice but too cluttered. it doesn't do search from the address bar, but in the search bar. i could never get safarisia installed. but this little pluglin in a beauty! finally i can go back to searching through address bar without getting my hands off the keyboard. thank you!

you have to go to the DEVs site to DL the Safari 3 version.

what is Keywurl running a backup of the keyword.plist every 2 minutes?
way overkill. maybe backup only on quit?
check your console log to see backup activity.

Sadly Keywurl seems to conflict with Safari 3.2.

What a pity, I really miss it.

I am using it with 3.2.1 and been using it for a while now with no probs. Sure it's not some other plugin conflict?

That's interesting. I just installed it again and got this error when I launched Safari:

"Safari 3.2.1 (v5525.27.1) has not been tested with the plugin Keywurl (null) (v1.3.5). As a precaution, it has not been loaded. Please contact the plugin developer (not the SIMBL author) for further information."

Oops! Strike that. I made the mistake of downloading the earlier version from the developers site ("download and install" gives you the earlier, non-beta version, not 1.4b2). I should have looked more carefully.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction! It's great to have Keywurl back.
