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.

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.

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.

Must have plugin for Safari. Developer also released a Safari 4 version lightning quick.

Sadly Keywurl seems to conflict with Safari 3.2. What a pity, I really miss it.

Keywurl is awesome! I use it dozens of times of day with Safari 3.1.2 and OS X 10.5.4. (Couldn't get Sogudi to work well with my set-up.) Btw, my all-time Safari add-on, SafariStand, does keywords too, but I like Keywurl's interface better.) Setting it up is so simple and easy because of the great interface. Here are some fave searchess -- you can, of course, give your own keywords. For example, I use wk for Wikipedia searches. (Where you see "Query" below, is where Keywurl puts in its Query lozenge (it seems to automatically put in the commas where needed before and after the Query lozenge, because when you look at the expansion in Keywurl you don't see commas, but when I copied and pasted here, the commas where correctly inserted.) Anyway, Keywurl is awesome, and this might help you get started: All Music http://allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?P=amg&sql=,Query,&opt1=1 Amazon Search: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/search-handle-url/index%3Dblended%26field-keywords%3D,Query Discogs http://www.discogs.com/search?type=all&q=,Query Flickr http://flickr.com/photos/tags/,Query Google Search: http://www.google.com/search?q=,Query,&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8 Google Image Search: http://images.google.com/images?q=,Query,&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8 Google Maps http://maps.google.com/maps?oi=map&q=,Query Internet Movie Database (IMDB) http://imdb.com/find?s=all&q=,Query MacUpdate http://www.macupdate.com/search.php?keywords=,Query,&starget=google VersionTracker http://www.versiontracker.com/php/qs.php?mode=basic&action=search&str=,Query,&srchArea=macosx&submit=Go Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Search?search=,Query,&go=Go YouTube http://youtube.com/results?search_query=,Query Of course, you can also use Keywurl to just open any website you want with a keyword -- for example, I type gn to open Google News. To add other searches, go the site your interested in, do a search there, and then copy the url into Keywurl, replacing your search keyword with one or more of Keywurl/s Search lozenges,as needed. With a little luck and experimentation, you can set up searchs at almost any web site. (You can use these Searches in SafariStand too, but there, as I recall, SafariStand uses @key& for its keyword Search field, not a graphic lozenge like Keywurl does.) Good luck!

After I installed PlugSuit, Keywurl no longer works. Other plugins for Safari are fine. Any ideas of what could be wrong?

Looks like a good program. I'm just wondering what distinguishes it from Sogudi.

The installer requires OS X 10.5. But the System Requirements says: Safari 3.0 and Mac OS X 10.4 or later?? I'm using Safari 3.1 on OS 10.4.11.

I missed this little gem when I was using the beta of Safari 3.1. I'm so glad it's back again!

Alright! The 1.3.3 update makes Keywurl compatible with the new Safari 3.1 update! Next day fix -- not too shabby (not as fast as SafariStand or Saft updates, which came out the same day as the new Safari, but not bad!) Glad to have this great little add-on back.

Does NOT work with my Safari 3.1, I got this error message - "Safari 3.1 (v4525.13) has not been tested with the plugin Keywurl (null) (vKEYWURL_VERSION). As a precaution, it has not been loaded. Please contact the plugin developer (not the SIMBL author) for further information."

I love this little app. I've been an Opera user for many years. My favorite feature of Opera has been the ability to use the f2 key as a shortcut and search trigger. Keywurl allows me do get the similar functionality in Safari. I don't think I'll be leaving Opera any time soon, but this closes the gap for me a little.

This version just gives me the following error when Safari launches: "Failed to load the Keywurl plugin. *** -[NSCFNumber objectForKey:]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x214450"

Very nice, useful software. I think it needs a bit more by way of a help file though. I tried creating a search for MacUpdate: http://www.macupdate.com/search.php?arch=all&keywords=@@@&os=macosx It works well except I can't get the keyword to stick in the Preferences file (I had to replace the expansion string for discogs). Maybe it's a bug or maybe I just can't work it out.
