Few Mac users bother to question the default search engine in Safari. Goodle is has been, Google it is, Google it shall remain.
A few months ago I decided to change to Bing and have rather forgotten about it. It’s just been business as usual and only yesterday did I notice the “Bing” in the Safari search bar.
I’m still getting my results and haven’t been inconvenienced in any way; plus, I have moved away from Big Brother to what I believe is a slightly less intrusive search engine.
To change, go to Safari Preferences, General and amend the default search engine. Safari gives you two alternatives to Google: Bing and Yahoo. I haven’t used Yahoo for years and don’t hear many good things, so Bing it is. Mashable.com has some more information to allow you to make an informed choice.
