Safari without Glims is like a car without seats, a watch without a strap, pudding without cream. You can use it alright, but it can be soooo much better!
Seriously, the addition of the search engine choices, alone, makes it a winner, I also love the download folders sorted by date and a whole load of other things that turns Safari from a ho-hum alternative to Chrome and Opera to the best browser out there.
It's just a pity it can't fix the silly mono-box idea Apple copied from Google... I'd love to be able to snap back to my search term like the old days... are you listening Glims team?

Invaluable and indispensable addition to Mail.
You do, however, need to check for updates whenever Apple updates Mail and disables bundles (it doesn't update itself and plist is difficult to find).
Once you use it you will wonder how you managed without it!

I just added the two suggested strings suggested. Took less than 5 minutes (and I am not a techy) and now works perfectly again. I have absolutely no idea what the strings are or what they do, but they restore the use of this much appreciatedsl utility... you don't realise how valuable something is until it is taken away!

I cannot overstate the impact of this little program on Safari. With AcidSearch Safari becomes the best browser by far. I then had to remove it to prevent 3.2 from crashing continually and, without it, the crippling inconvenience caused by Apples greedy exclusivity deal with Google, renders Safari a hobbled parady of what it ought to be.
Come on Steve Jobs! How about putting the user before profits and incorporating multiple search engine options. It's how it should have been from the start.
I, for one, have reinstalled 3.1 with AcidSearch again. If this ever fails, I'll be switching to Firefox before resorting to Safari 3.2 or its emasculated successors.
