Replace Safari's Google search bar w/Yahoo.

Overview

Safari2Yahoo is a simple AppleScript application that is workaround for a bug in Safari that doesn't allow you to change the search engine from Google to something else. Safari2Yahoo creates a copy of Safari.app named SafariYahoo.app and modifies the files in the bundle such that the SafariYahoo.app will use Yahoo! search instead of Google search. For now it only uses the main yahoo.com search and not any country specific search. It has been tested on both OS X 10.3 and OS X 10.4. Changes * 01.18.2006: Works on OSX 10.4. Some string labels got moved to new files * 04.15.2005: no longer version dependent, makes a copy of Safari instead of editing original * 06.09.2004: updated for OS X 10.3.4 * 03.16.2004: updated for OS X 10.3.3 * 02.25.2004: Initial release Known Bugs On OS X 10.4 I am unable to find a way to change the contextual menu that pops up when you select text on a page and control-click or right click. It says "Search in Google" still, but it will actually use Yahoo! instead.

Try Acid Search! Its the best and is compatible with the newest version of Safari. Plus, you can fully customize the search bar, but you don't need to type in ebay, etc. You can have the search bar do it for you all automatically.

if you really want something like this i suggest the safarikeywords program, it has its own prefpane and from there you can specify as many search engines to search as you want. on mine it does yahoo, ebay, google, google image search, macosxhints, mac update and a dozen others. To use it you just type in what you want to find preceeded by the appropriate word. for example to search for "microwavable dice" in ebay you type "ebay microwavable dice" in safari's search bar. highly reccomended!

I installed this and sure enough, it replaces the search menu text with Yahoo! But when I used the search bar it gave me Google results, then the bar just stopped having any text in it. Removed it. os 10.3.3

Worked great and it's free! I was able to replace the Google search engine with Yahoo and it even changed the grey search engine lettering from "Google" to "Yahoo!" Now if it could only change the engine to Teoma...

The new search at Yahoo! is great. I highly suggest that you guys who are wondering "why" replace Google with Yahoo! try out Yahoo! for a few days. Have an open mind, be objective, and I promise you that you'll love it. Make the switch to the better search provider already! ;)

You guys who ask why, obviously haven't used Yahoo! search for awhile and don't know that they just launched their own search, not using google what so ever and it's better. Compare the two side by side with the same queries. I've done this myself a few times and 4 out 5 times, Yahoo! Search is better. Their product search also kicks butt over froogle. Also, If you haven't tried the new search and you're saying it sucks, well... yeah.. they used to use google so you're basically saying google sucks too. Duh!

I thought Yahoo used Google as it's search engine anyway? What's the difference?
