Using SearchMash instead of Google in Safari on OSX


OK, so having played around with SearchMash for a while I decided to set it as my search engine for Safari.

Not an easy task indeed, but here is the answer, just follow the following simple steps:

  • open a Terminal
  • run “vim /Applications/” (without the quotes)
  • hit the “:” key to enter command mode
  • paste in “%s/” (again without the quotes) and hit enter
  • save and quit by typing “:wq”
  • restart safari

Enjoy! of course, I cannot guarantee you will not run into any problems – do the above at your own risk – but it worked for me 🙂
