Setting my default search engine to Duck Duck Go
May 25, 2014 9:36 AM Subscribe
I want to make Duck Duck Go my default search engine (YOU KNOW WHY) in the same bar on my Safari that currently I can put the url or Google search in (I want it to use DDG instead of Google, or have a separate bar for DDG).

I've installed the Duck Duck Go extension
, but you have to click their icon to get the search box instead of just clicking in the url box and typing. I'm so used to doing the latter, I know I will forget to use DDG if it's not super-easy.
I'd like there to be a box I can click inside of instead of clicking a thing that opens a box. How do I make the little icon's search bar display in my toolbar? I've tried Customize Toolbar but can't figure it out.
This is the sort of thing I feel like I should be able to find an easy answer to online, but everything I'm finding assumes I'm going to jailbreak my phone
or something. This is my desktop (a mac) and also, while I'm reasonably computer savvy, I'm not really jailbreak-your-phone-with-no-bad-consequences level of savvy.
