Internet Explorer, the default web-browser of Microsoft Windows gives users a facility to search with Bing by default. However a Google Friend can alter default Bing search to much acceptable Google Search.
Default Bing search allows user to search with bing in Internet Explorer while type something in the address bar of IE. This is a kind of browser’s default facility that lets you allow to search directly from address bar with out opening a search engine.
For example if you type any web address to the IE address bar then it would open that particular website. But when you type some keywords like ‘techntrix’ instead of ‘techntrix.com’ then a search result opens up that is a Bing search in Internet Explorer (by default).
However if you prefer Google Search then you would love to replace Bing Search with Google search. This script describes how to set Google Search as default Web search so that when you type something in the IE’s address bar (not a web address) it shows Google Search Results.
