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.

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.

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.

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?
