Is there any way to turn off Safari's "improvement" to URL autocompletion?

I used to be able to type a letter in the URL field and Safari would autocomplete with my most commonly accessed URL starting with that letter.
For example, typing "t" would have Safari autocomplete the specific technorati search page for my blog.
But now, new in Safari 3.0.4, is a "feature" that screws up the autocomplete: typing "t" goes to the domain homepage - not the specific page I've gone to in the past. So "t" goes to technorati.com - and then I have to arrow-key down to the page I wanted. It's an unnecessary and irritating step.
Is there any way to turn that off? (Without reverting to an older version of Safari?)
P.S. I also don't like the new search feature that animates the find-in-page function. Any way to turn that off, and go back to what the Find function has been doing fine for, oh, 14 years now?
