Safari 4 introduced a beefed-up Google search field on its toolbar that provides suggestions as you type, which is wonderful. What's not so wonderful is that it remembers everything you search without an option to disable it or clear it easily.
I can't figure out why Apple removed the "Clear Search" option from the drop down menu which displays past searches. I've managed to get the option back by hacking Safari's plist file but it's too much work.
Is there an easier way to do this, without going nuclear by using File->Reset Safari... or using the plist hack?
