Search the Web Quickly
Spotlight also offers a really quick way to perform a web search, thanks to a clever keyboard shortcut.
Hit CMD+SPACEBAR to bring up Spotlight, type in your search term, and then hit CMD+B. A new Safari window or tab will appear with the search results from your preferred search engine, whether it’s Google or DuckDuckGo.
You can’t use the keyboard shortcut on iOS — even with an external keyboard on your iPad — but Spotlight on iOS will also perform web searches and it can often be faster to swipe down from the home screen and key your search in there than manually opening a new window in Safari.
