    I tried bing for a week, but it just doesn't give the same results as google
    is there any other search engines that come close to google?

    also, how do you change the default search engine in safari?

    woah, I've just noticed in windows safari that you can simply choose yahoo instead of google!

    is it the same with OSX safari?

    (I wont know until I get home)

    It's kind of a personal preference. You'll have to keep trying until you find one you really like. I use Yahoo! almost exclusively, but since it hasn't frustrated me, I've not compared it to others, even though I have a couple dozen bookmarked.

    I personally like bing, and so i went looking to switch it in safari from google to bing and i found that it isn't directly supported, there isn't even a choice between yahoo or google, its just google for safari on OSX. I heard that there is some safari plug-in that does it but i forget the name and if it can even do it. As for search engines go, try clusty.com, it takes results from google, yahoo, bing, etc and puts them on one page
