As you can see above, Chrome gives you a total of four search engines to choose from, including:

  • Google
  • Yahoo!
  • Bing
  • DuckDuckGo

As a reminder, the default engine is used whenever you search for something using the top search/address bar in Chrome. In other words, it's something you'll be using a lot. That means you'll want to pick an engine you'll be happy using, but if you're unhappy with the engine you choose, the good news is that you can switch back and forth however much you'd like.
