Safari Tiger hack

If you use Interface Builder to turn Safari’s browser from metal to regular, then have it use the unified title/toolbar look, it’s kind of cool. (At least, I like it. Not sure how well it wears yet, though.)

(Always take care and make backups when editing with Interface Builder, of course.)

Safari with unified title/toolbar

One thing I’ve noticed about Safari is that it has a customizable toolbar now. Yes!

But, on the downside, I can’t figure out how to get rid of the search field. (I always use Huevos instead, and I like having the extra space for the URL.) Does anyone know how to remove it?

Safari’s toolbar isn’t quite a conventional Cocoa toolbar. No chiclet in the upper-right of the window and no options for showing icon & text or icon only.

Still, though, I’m quite pleased, since it always kind of bugged me how you had to customize the address bar via menu commands. This is much better.
