Use any search engine in Safari

Keyword Search lets you set up keywords to search the web with any search engine directly from the Safari address bar. Searching Wikipedia for information on simians is as simple as typing “w monkey” in the address bar, “wa 1+2” solves this mathematical conondrum on WolphramAlpha, “down” lets you see if your favorite website is down for everyone or just you.

Several search engines are provided out of the box, and you can easily add your own. All your searches and settings sync seamlessly with the iOS version of Keyword Search.

What’s New

Version 2.0.3

Keyword Search for iOS is now out! All searches and settings are automatically synced via iCloud.

Keyword Search settings have moved out of the app and into the Safari toolbar button.

Version 2.0.3 works with all the international versions for the default Safari search engines.

Game changing time saver

I have been using TextExpander snippets for the sites I search often but this is so much less cognitive load. w for wikipedia, boom, done! I've set up a few more on my own, and it does take a bit of sleuthing to figure out the format for the search query for some sites (is it /?s or /?search) but the starter point examples really help.

If a site has a search field, just enter something there and then inspect the URL to which you're driven to find the appropriate search string.

Fantastic extension!

This is such a great safari extension, really well done. I generally like the integrations with Mac and Safari but the browser plug in's and features are sometimes limiting. I have been looking for a way to do keyword searches for a while now. This is so great. I really like the implementation. Easy to add new sites by just clicking the browser extension icon, entering in the search URL from the site, name, and the shorthand you want to use, and boom. Done.

Thank you for building this application. I don't like how apple makes these great products only to limit you on what you can do. I loved this integration with chrome but since I primarily only use Safari now, this allows me to quickly search for terms in other search engines without manually having to change it in preferences each time.
