If you want to use DuckDuckGo as your default search engine in Google Chrome browser, here are a few steps you need to follow to set that up:
- Go to Settings
Under Search heading, select Manage search engines…
Under Other search engines box, fill in the form in this order:
- Click Done and open Manage search engines… again.
Make the Duckduckgo entry as the default.
You should see in on Chrome’s omnibox now.
- Click Done.
Now when you type your search keyword on the URL box, the query will be passed to DuckDuckGo search engine. You can use the same step to use other search engines as your default in Chrome, just make sure you type-in the URL with the string parameter(s) correctly.
