xSearch supports iOS, iPadOS and macOS, one purchase for all platforms!
xSearch is a Safari extension enables using multiple search engines, add a shortcut and a space before the search text to switch between search engines instantly.
For example: use “g apple” to search apple with Google search engine, and “ddg apple” to search apple with DuckDuckGo search engine.
This is how macOS describes xSearch’s permissions in the Safari Extensions settings:
‣‣ “xSearch” does NOT have permissions to read, alter or transmit content from any webpages.
That means we can NOT access content from any webpages, so your privacy is fully protected.
** Functionalities **
