Switch Search Engines In Safari With the Spacebar

You can go into Safari, Preferences to switch which search engine is used by the address field. But a quicker way to do it is to simply press the spacebar when the search field is completely empty. This brings up a list of the search engines that you can arrow-down to and press Return to select. This is very useful if you need to switch between search engines often.

    The Spacebar also shows some of your last group of searches – kind of a condensed search history.

    In Safari preferences, I have consistently chosen duckduckgo as my search engine. But if I used google, that preference was ALWAYS changed to Google. Selecting duckduckgo with this method seems to have solved my problem. I’m so happy!
