The majority of Web traffic originates with a keyword search, facilitated by one of several search engines found throughout the 'net. Many browsers offer the ability to utilize these search engines directly from their address bar or another toolbar, eliminating a step in the process. This is just one of many conveniences of the modern Web browser, which avoids the user having to load their favorite search engine's home page.
Chrome for iOS features a combination address and search bar called the Omnibox, where both URLs and keyword searches can be entered. The browser comes prepackaged with three search engine choices: Google, Yahoo!, and Bing. The default engine is, naturally, Google. Chrome allows you to modify this setting, however, with just a few simple finger swipes. If you'd like to change the default search engine on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, our graphical tutorial will show you the way.
