Change Safari's default search engine
Authored by: drudus on Feb 14, '12 08:30:19AM

Seems easier & safer to edit the hosts file to direct the Yahoo option to duckduckgo.

eg add
184.72.115.86 search.yahoo.com
to /etc/hosts/ as described in duckduckgo's help
http://help.duckduckgo.com/customer/portal/articles/255650

It will affect all users on the machine that select Yahoo as the search engine, but it is less likely to break with OS & Safari updates.
