What Is Default Search Engine?
Default Search Engine Definition
Short definition: The default search engine is the service you use to get Internet results after entering different search terms.
The default search engine which is set in each browser displays results each time you type something in the search field. Phrases and terms entered directly in the address bar open search results generated by the default search engine as well. It can be easily changed by the use of the settings menu available in every web browser.
The default search engine web browser setting is among the most commonly affected settings by potentially undesired programs like browser hijackers, adware, and bogus browser extensions.
