    This is stinking annoying. For about two days now, whenever I put in a search in google, it automatically tunneled to Bing.com, and Bing shows the results. I am using the latest version of Safari on my 2011 MacBook Pro. Anyone else have this issue?

    And yes, my default search engine IS google.

    Have you checked whether you have any extension installed that also modifies the default search engine? (SafariKeywordSearch would be an example.)

    Sounds like you may have some adware on there. Check for any new extensions like Janichsan mentioned, then run this adware scanner.
