Google is the default search engine on virtually every browser – with one exception: Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, which obviously users Microsoft’s own Bing. Now that Microsoft is rolling out version 9 of Internet Explorer to most of its users, Google is actively courting these users with a large blue bar on its homepage: “Come here often? Make Google your homepage.” The possible answers: “Sure” and “No thanks.” If you decline, Google will then show you an ad for Chrome every time you go to google.com.
