    Question Change safari default search engine?
    Hi!

    I've been searching all over the web for a way to modify the iPhone 3Gs Safari default search engine.
    As it works today I have google selected and when I do a search it always goes to my homecountrys (Swedens) localised google search page and it always displays it i classic mode.
    I haven't found a way to default it to search on google.com (instead of google.se) and have it remember to display the mobile version.

    Has anyone here got any clue as to how I can modify this bit of information in safari?
    I would GREATLY appreciate it!

    Thanks in advance and
    MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

    settings > safari > general > search engine.

    there probably isnt a way for it not to default to google.se because thats on googles end based on your IP address.
    I made it ra1n...again

    Surely there must be SOME kind of hack for this? A modified safari.app or something? a .plist-file that is easily modded? Something, anything... no?
