Change Safari's search box to search Google UK
Authored by: Fairly on Mar 23, '09 12:01:09PM
This is extremely stupid. You're editing a binary non-text file with a text editor. What guarantee do you have that the text editor will precisely preserve the contents? You have *none*. For the love of all that is of at least median intelligence *use a binary editor*. Such as HexFiend.

Then again try these and you can have Google from as many countries as you like without interfering with your Safari executable. You can have Google Web, Google Images, Google Maps, Google News, and so forth. As separate commands.

Finally: if you're on Leopard and do this (either way) you're going to break the code sign on the bundle. This means Safari will refuse to access your keychain in the future.

All told this is a very uncool move. Strongly discouraged. BTW this is essentially what several third party utilities did to offer you the same "functionality". It's just crazy. Don't do it.
