Ive just discovered you can change Edges default search from bing to google in settings, now that's handy as bing isn't very good.


You can for most versions of windows - but if you buy a tablet with a smaller screen then they can come with a slightly different version of Windows that is locked to Bing for edge and IE.

Where do the Chrome clones send it ...???

If it's going anywhere, google is probably the safest.


don't use Google search engine and it will not send it anywhere. Chrome itself do not send data, the only data is when you first install it, so Google knows how many is installed.

I presume the settings like use a web service to resolve navigation errors or use a prediction service to load pages more quickly will send data, other wise they will not work,. but Firefox offers those services as well. Just turn them off if worried.

Not sure don't see what not, there is a list of "Discovered" search engines, if you visit duck duck go then its discovered I would imagine you could set it as default.
