Changing Safari’s Default Search Option

I have recently brought a new mac and am loving if so far šŸ˜‰ . However, there is already something that has suprised me?? It is the fact that there is only the one option for searching in the safari browser and it is not changable :O . The reason it surprises me, is because so much junkĀ criticismĀ is thrown the way of Microsoft for making the default search their own and yet here I am looking at the coolest OS and wondering what is so different with this “unchangeable” google search? At least with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer you could change the search within a few clicks.

Well, enough with the winging šŸ˜‰ because it only took me a few mins to find a solution called Inquisitor . This is a pretty cool app considering it adds functionality like Opera where you get the auto complete search popup as you type. It also gives you the ability to edit the default search engine in the advancedĀ preferencesĀ of safari, and you will notice the difference.
