Chrome 50 Includes Windows 10 Desktop Search Redirection


As of Chrome 50, Google has included Windows desktop search redirection. This allows a user to redirect all Bing searches performed by Cortana without additional software. This is a huge victory for Chrome users, giving back the control of what search engine is used by Cortana (Firefox has had this feature for months).

These changes to Chrome will allow more freedom in future development of Chrometana. Assuming Google’s implementation is reliable and consistent within other locales, we can double down on our focus of adding new features for Chrometana 2.0.

We’re very happy Google has chosen to implement a feature into Chrome that enables the majority of Chrometana’s original functionality. We consider the user’s ability to choose their search engine beyond important, and we’re happy to see Google shares this perspective
