Chrometana - Redirect Bing Somewhere Better - Chrome Web Store
Item media 1 screenshot

Overview

Redirect all Bing (and therefore Cortana) searches to a search engine of your choice!

Man it's been a long month. We got DMCA'd by Microsoft for the logo, but we got a new one from a very generous Preston Locke. Enjoy! ----------------------- My Google account was compromised and an unofficial version (1.1.3) was sent out as an update to all Chrometana users. That update bundled malware. We are so incredibly sorry for this and are working with Google to identify how the account was compromised. We have just shipped update 2.0 out now, which includes a streamlined UI and NO MALWARE. Please do not hesitate to contact Theo through Github or feedback on here at any point. Again, we are so sorry about this and are going far out of our way to prevent compromises from happening in the future. ----------------------- Recommended by Engadget, CNET, Gizmodo, IBTimes, WIndowsClub and more! "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. Condensed Changelog (Visit the blog for more detail): v1.1.2 - Reverted tabs permission request, fallback is now a redirect script v1.1.1 - The "small" update, decreased package size v1.1.0 - UI overhaul v1.0.2 - Fix for background app issue In order for Chrometana to work when Chrome is closed, you must have background apps enabled. If you have disabled background apps, you can re-enable by doing the following: 1. Go to Chrome Settings 2. Click "Show Advanced Settings" 3. Scroll down to System 4. Check "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed"
