Chromium automatically saves a list of the search engines you’ve come across while browsing the Web. For example, if you visit http://www.youtube.com, the browser automatically detects and adds the YouTube search engine to the list of search engines that you can access from the address bar.

To manually add, edit, or remove search engines from the browser, follow these steps:

  1. Click the wrench icon wrench icon on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Preferences.
  3. Click the Basics tab.
  4. Click Manage in the “Default search” section.

Use the buttons in the dialog to manage the search engines in the list. You’ll need to provide the following information for each search engine:

  • Name: Nickname for the search engine.
  • Keyword: A text shortcut for the search engine. Use the shortcut to do keyword searches.
  • URL: The web address for the search engine. Learn how to find this URL
    1. Go to the search engine you want to add.
    2. Do a search.
    3. Copy and paste the web address of the search results page into the URL field. Keep in mind that the URL for the search results page is different from the website URL. For example, while you’d go to http://www.google.com to access Google, the URL you’d add here is for the search results page, http://www.google.com/search?q=XYZ.
    4. Replace the search term in the URL with %s. To continue the Google search engine example, you’d end up with http://www.google.com/search?q=%s as your final search engine URL. When you type a search in the address bar, %s will automatically be replaced by your search term.

    Chromium is a chemical element which has the symbol Cr and atomic number 24. It is the first element in Group 6. It is a steely-gray, lustrous, hard and brittle metal which takes a high polish, resists tarnishing, and has a high melting point. :^,;

    Good day to you http://healthdigest101.com
