Google web browser has very minimum option for customization as it is already built to suit the Internet users,if you have Google chrome browser downloaded on your PC then you will know that the browser has a smart address bar which also acts as search engine,this means you can type the website address with automatic url suggestion as well as search in search engine using the same bar.

 

When you are done with installation of Chrome,you will have a option to change the search engine and also to import the password,history and bookmarks from other browser (backup and restore the chrome profile).If you have skipped changing the search engine then Google chrome will have a default search engine set which is “Google.com”.Also chrome can be empowered with firefox chrome addon/extension.
