I can't stand the new Google search box (and buttons). I feel they're extremely over-sized and I would love to revert them back to their former selves.

How can I do this on Safari 4? I'm aware of Stylish for Firefox, but Stylish themes don't seem to work with Safari.

I totally agree. The new google search is like for people 95 and older with eye problems. How do you fix this in FF? – D'Arvit Sep 11 '09 at 11:08
huh, I thought i was going crazy when it got bigger. Good to know that i am not crazy... – Tony Sep 11 '09 at 11:13
Or you can just get used to it. You won't even notice it a couple of days or weeks in. – Christian Studer Sep 11 '09 at 11:27

You could install this greasmonkey script to undo it.

Is greasemonkey available for safari 4? – Josh Hunt Sep 11 '09 at 10:54
+1 for saving me from poking my eye out with a sharp character (FF user here)... for safari I found this:… check comments for safari 4 compatibility, didn't test it though since I don't use it – T. Kaltnekar Sep 11 '09 at 11:15
Works well but stretches the page a little. +1 – D'Arvit Sep 11 '09 at 11:28

You could create a user stylesheet for Safari with the lines:

input.lst { 
  font-size: 13px;
  margin-bottom: 0;
input.lsb {
  font-size: 13px;
  height: 22px;
  margin: 0

Might also need to add something like:  width:25em  to  input.lst  if the search box is still too wide.
