Inquisitor for Safari needs Yahoo for full functionality Web Browsers
This may be obvious, but now that Inquisitor has been bought by Yahoo, the instant display of web sites matching your search terms only works if Yahoo is set as the preferred Search Engine in the Inquisitor (Search) Preferences in Safari. It's set this way by default (so Inquisitor works out of the box), but if you prefer to use Google for your searches, you'll lose the main benefit of installing Inquisitor.

From the website you linked to: "Using both Glims and Saft on the same browser could have unexpected results."

And out goes Glim. I have looked at it before, and thought it to be nice, but Saft is an excellent helper for Safari. Expecially if you want Safari to have some nice features like FireFox has/can have, via extensions.

If Glims can get a way to reorder tabs, I'll dump Saft.

The purpose of Glims is to replace things like Saft and Inquisitor. I would definitely leave them a comment if there is a Saft feature that you want them to include.

This is why I never updated Inquisitor to the post-Yahoo version...

But then won't you be stuck if an updated version of Safari breaks it?

And instantly. Inquisitor loses ALL value. If someone prefers something other than Yahoo, MAKE YAHOO BETTER, don't force them to sacrifice functionality and suffer with a search engine they don't prefer.

I repeat, this is a bug - nothing more. In fact, it was broken by a change on Google's side.

I can accept that's is a bug due to a change in Google. But this doesn't explain why results from Amazon, Wikipedia and other engines aren't displayed no more. And it doesn't explain why, when choosing Yahoo as first engine, the "Google's bug" is still here (No results are displayed since two or three days).

I'm running the current version of Inquistor 3.2(v58) and it works as it always has. I have Google set as the default search engine. Don't see what the poster is referring to.
