9. Know Your Search Options > Use the Google Search Field

Use the Google Search Field

At its core, the Google search field hasn't changed between Safari 3 and 4: you can use it the same way you always have—with, perhaps, some honed techniques you'll learn here. But Safari 4 has added two new features: the drop-down list and the SnapBack button.

The Drop-Down List

Start typing in the Google field in the Safari toolbar, and a drop-down menu appears, with ten suggested completions (Figure 9-1).

The Google drop-down menu (shortened in this picture) provides ten suggestions that change as you continue typing in the field, and a list of your last ten search terms. If your search term appears on the current Web page, the bottom of the menu lets you know how many occurrences there are; selecting this Find command opens the Find banner (see Search Within a Page).
