Great extension! Being able to Tab over to the search engine list dropdown menu is key, so one can search without taking their hands off the keyboard.

Great job, thanks for making this available!

yes, mine wants to update in safari from 1.8 Iwhich i downloaded quite some time ago from the apple gallery) to 1.8.3.
Hopefully this fixes the bug where the search box would just get stuck in my tab's page and stay there....

if it does, I'll be giving it very high marks indeed.

Well, the update killed all my search engines and set everything back to default. +(

Sorry to hear updating clobbered your settings. 1.8.3 is the first (still current) version I installed so I haven't done any updates yet. Haven't noticed the bug you mentioned, with Safari 5.1 on Lion.

Could you please email your Safari preferences file (~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.plist) to canisbos@gmail.com? That would help me troubleshoot your issue.

My apologies to the developer and thanks to fishscale. Indeed, PopSearch does provide the ability to search the site you're sitting on, both through Bing and Google.

Works great! Thanks.

Thanks for this. PopSearch is a good replacement for the old InputManager Safari SIA (Search in Address Bar), not working anymore since version 5. I was really missing it.
I added plenty of search engines and it seems to work fine.

First I don't know if this is answering your question but I found this related info on searching your current site, I haven't installed the extension so this is just grabbed from their site:

"PopSearch even does site-specific searches. To search just the site you're currently viewing, select “Google Here” or “Bing Here”. You can define your own site-specific search engines, too."


--- To macupdate admin(s) I think we need to have the file size for this extension changed from mb to kb. A 38 mb extension would be an app of its own.

I wasn't actually asking any question :-) Just saying that PopSearch works fine as a substitute of old Safari SIA. I installed it and added lots of sites, just replacing the keyword in search string with %s. Running Safari 5.0.1 on 10.6.4.

Please developers ...... we need an extension (button) to enable us to search the site we're currently on. Or is there a string/url that one could enter into this extension or Glims to do that?

That's easy to do with Google. You just type: your-search-word site:yourwebsite.com

An example Google gives is:

[iraq site:nytimes.com]

Nice extension but I have a bug: first time I make a search it's all right. Second time I press cmd-K the popup appears in the upper left corner of the window and the search bar goes out of sight (all I can see is the "Go" and "Settings" buttons.
Leopard 10.5.8 and Safari 5.0.6 here

Ugom, does this happen on every site, or just on certain ones?

Keywords issue isn't solved (at least for me). Just updated from 1.2.8 to 1.3.1 and all my keywords are gone... Well, no major headhache, but I thought I'd let you know.

The keyword bug has been fixed in 1.3.3, released yesterday. (The download link on this page always points to the latest version.)

Thanks for fixing it. I assume you no longer need my .plist, isn't it?

  • You can use short keywords to select a search engine in the popup search bar or Safari 6's address bar.
  • The popup search bar can show Google search suggestions as you type a query, or it can remember your recent search queries and show you a list of ones that match what you type in the input box. If you're repeating a recent search, just select an item in the menu and press Enter.
  • If you select some text on the current page before pressing the hotkey, that text will be automatically entered into the popup search bar.
  • You can export (back up) your search engines to Pinboard or Delicious, and import (restore) them from Pinboard or Delicious to PopSearch on the same computer or another one.
