Can I change my default google search engine page to a different search engine ?
If you mean the built in search window at the top right of Safari, yes... just click the arrow to the left to see the choices in my screen cap.
yes i mean that window but i want to use a specific search engine rather than the given conventional brands
Using a search engine for "safari default search engine plugin", I found an entry for Glims. This looks like it will do what you want and more.
I don't know of a way to change that without using a plugin (like Glims mentioned). Plugins can cause instability with Safari sometimes. That said, I have not tried Glims.
There is a Safari extension called Popsearch that will give you a popup search box for any search site you want to use. I have not tried it either, but I use a couple of the same devs other extensions and they work well.
