Every search engine has its own search algorithm and depending on user’s personal preference and experience, they can change their default search engines. Most of the web browsers like Chrome, Opera and Mozilla Firefox provide in-built settings in order to switch to other search engines. One way to change the search engine is to install a fresh copy of a new browser and follow its instructions to do so. But here in this article, I will demonstrate a simple way to change the search engine from inside the different browser’s settings.
Chrome Browser offers an easy way to change it to AOL, Bing, Yahoo or Ask search engines. Open the Google Chrome Control button which is represented in the form of three dots on the upper right corner. Now from the various drop-down options displayed down, tap on settings.
Now under the search engine settings, you have options from a drop-down list to pick a default browser of your choice.
Mozilla offers you to change it to multiple search engines that include Google, Yahoo, Bing, Amazon, DuckDuckGo and much more. Follow the simple steps described here. Open main menu (3-dots) from the top-right of the Firefox browser and click on options. Now from the left sidebar menu, click on search button. Under the default search engine, select the preferred browser to use as default search engine.
In Opera you have the option to change the search engine from Google to Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, Amazon, Bing, Wikipedia. Go to menu on top left corner and navigate to settings.
