Hidden in the most recent version of Chrome is the ability to change its default search engine to a more privacy-friendly option. With the release of Chrome 73, Google has quietly introduced DuckDuckGo as a preferred search option in more than 60 markets including the United States and the United Kingdom.

While Google didn’t offer much fanfare for the change — at least in comparison to flagship features like new support for media keys — the change can be spotted on GitHub. In a note on the code repository site, Google acknowledges that it updated the available search engines based on “new usage statistics” from “recently collected data.” In most countries, the list of options also includes Google, Yahoo and Bing.
