Is there a way to prevent Safari from saving the search history on the browser toolbar? I see where you can clear the previous search history, but I would like to prevent it from saving at all.

Thank you

Private browsing (Safari>Private Browsing...) will do it. However, this prevents all history and cookies from saving as well.
