Since I’m downright stubborn about switching to Chrome, I was really happy to see that someone had tried to emulate its location bar with Safari Omnibar. It’s got a little way to go still, but it’s got enough promise for me to keep it installed.
Now all I have to do is break my habit of hitting CMD + L followed by a quick Tab to get me to the search field and I’ll be golden.

Why are you stubborn about switching? Chrome is better in every regard I can think of.
I know this is going to sound stupid, but I prefer Safari’s tab location and anti-aliasing. And since I stare at my browser all day, those two things are enough to keep me with Safari.
So nice to meet someone that is as stubborn about Safari as I am.
If you use TinkerTools (I think it’s TinkerTools) – then you can make it so when you CMD+T it just goes straight to the search bar anyway.
Or you could make the first shortcut on the Bar into Google and then just press CMD+1. I have all 9 of these setup so I can use shortcuts real fast.
