Internet Explorer 8 is one of the good applications released by Microsoft recently. One of the points of contention and reason for legal troubles for Microsoft has been that Microsoft did not allow IE to be in-installed and change default search provider in the tool bar. Microsoft has allowed users to change search providers since last release of Internet Explorer. As it is user behavior that they don't change what is installed by default. If users want to use Google search provider they end up going to Google's site and then perform search. You really don't have to do that. You can simply change your search provider in Internet Explorer itself. Recently performance of FireFox has gone down the hill. So I have been using Firefox rarely. Once you know how you can change your search provider in Internet Explorer, you are all set. Here are simple steps that you can follow to add and user new search providers in Internet Explorer.
