Anyone know of a hack to change the main search in Safari from Google to Bing?
I am curious.
Hmmm..... very interesting question. I have yet to find any option for that, so not sure that you can...
I'm not sure if you can, but if you decompile the app and fiddle with the code, you'll be able to change it.
Or look in the contents.
Yeah, I would love to at least try out bing as my default search engine up in the search bar. Does Apple even have options in the preference menus to let the user change the search engine default?
Wonderful ... ObjC. Thanks ... figured someone would know.
The latest version of Glims has Bing bundled with it.
I didn't wait for them. I just added it as a custom search engine myself when Bing was announced.
+1 Glims. That is what I used.

(and yes I can see the irony of pointing you to a Microsoft site from an Apple site to install a Microsoft technology on an Apple product )
Why bother when they can't make Bing work correctly on a Mac. Yes I have sent feedback ~ twice.
Set your language to Australian English and Bing allows you to search the web or Australia only.
Set your language to British English and you get to search the web or the UK only.
Didn't bother to try US English ....
I have No idea why the heck MS would decide which Country you reside in by the Mac Spelling setting.
I live in New Zealand and set Australian or British English ~ we do not use American spelling. There are no other options.
