The usual suspects Google, Yahoo and Bing are not to my liking. How would I add an alternative to the app that I can pull down from the search field? Thanks.

    The only way to make another search engine a one-click operation would be to bookmark it.
    Or you can load on a 3rd party haxie.

    Hi,

    You might like Glims. It's free and offers numbers search engine choices as well as tab management, full screen mode and can be easily accessed from Safari / Preferences.

    Compatible with v10.6.5 and Safari 5.

    Note: "Using both Glims and Saft on the same browser could have unexpected results"

    I don't like Glims. It's too heavy duty and tries to do too many things. There must be a way of doing this without resorting to extensions, I presume it's a list somewhere that can be accessed via a terminal hack?

    I use Opera since I don't like Safari book marks and because YOU CAN'T ADD YOUR OWN SEARCH SITE.

     

    On top of that, it seems like when you do web search from Spotlight it uses Safari's search site default, not Opera's.

    Funny thing about that whole OS/Web intergration. One company got sued for that. Is Apple going down that road?

     

    And WHY can't I change it! This is beyond even stupid on Apples part. Give me 3 of the multi tracking search sites and not something like ixquick.com.

     

    FIX please.
