"This handy Chrome extension thwarts Microsoft's attempt to make Bing a thing." - CNET

Bing is an unfortunate thing. Defeat it with Chrometana, allowing for all Bing search requests to redirect to a search engine of your choice. Currently supports Google, Yahoo, and DuckDuckGo redirects for all Bing searches, even Cortana ones! Make sure you're using Chrome as your default browser for this to work properly.

    **BCURRAN3'S PACKAGE NOTES:**
    
    * This installs no software. It installs a registry key for the extension (or app) that Chrome will see and then ask you for permission to enable the extension (or app) if you are in Chrome or on the next run. Chrome will install the latest version of the extension (or app). The mentioned version is the version at time of packaging, you can ignore it. Chrome will handle updates to the extension (or app).

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
