Remove DuckDuckGo


#1

Is there a way to remove DuckDuckGo from MSN 8.5 search tag and opens pages using Google?

Unfortunately, the search engine Messenger uses is determined by a static configuration file it loads from a server after successful login, so you can’t change it yourself, not easily in that matter, and since the decision of the Messenger search engine was by @valtron, we’ll have to see his stance on it.

However, my prediction on why he chose DuckDuckGo was probably to promote some sort of anti-tracking atmosphere, but then there’s the Facebook tab, which does contradict it somewhat.
