How To Make Bing Your Default Search Engine In Chrome

I had a heck of a time figuring out how to make Bing my default search engine in Chrome – that is, until I stumbled upon Scott Hanselman’s twitter this morning. The key is adding “/search?q=%s” to the end of the url in the dialog box where you manage the search engine choices.    He’s got a quick write up on how to do it.

    Rob, I think your first search should be ‘who decided ‘bing’ was a good name for a search engine’?

    ;-)

    I have tried it a few times and its ok, to be honest it seems that all search engines are about the same, each one has its own things I like but for the most part I use google and yahoo. I will though try this one out for a while before I say one way or another as to if I like it or not.

    I tend to agree with you Video S. For the most part, the “bigger” search engines get very similar results. And based on the limited number of algorithm variations, I would expect them to be quite similar as to the search results bottom-line. I have been using and liking DuckDuckGo as my current go-to search engine.
