Change Safari's search box to search Google UK

Using international settings doesn't work if you have a custom region set, for example so that you can see the day of the week in the menu bar.

Why on earth Apple can't just make the search engine configurable in Safari preferences is beyond me.

They're getting paid for sending people off to Google is what I heard. You can no longer completely remove the Google search field. You could with earlier versions.

Yes that's what I think, but they could allow us to choose which Google. Relying on the regional settings plainly doesn't work, and anyway isn't intuitive.
