Change Safari's default search engine - revisited
Authored by: Milkshake2 on Dec 20, '08 03:18:27PM
change default to google.nl

To add to all the above:

To change the default from www.google.com to www.google.nl, do the following:

Fire up Terminal and cd to
/Applications/Safari.app/Contents/MacOS

copy (cp) the file Safari to Safari.old (in case you make a mistake)

Edit the Safari file with vi or your favorite editor:
vi Safari

search for the string:
http://%@.google.com/%@?q=%@&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8
And replace it with:
http://%@.google.nl/%@?&q=%@&btnG=Zoeken&meta=

Make sure the string is exact (it has the same length as the original string).

Save the file and quit the editor.

Fire up Safari


In Dutch:
Maak google.nl de default zoekmachine in Safari.
