How to customize the search engine URL:

1. Go to the search engine you want to add.

2. Do a search.

3. Copy and paste the web address of the search results page into the URL field. The address for the search results page is different from the website address.

For example, if you search for "soccer," the Google search results URL is http://www.google.com/search?q=soccer.

4. Replace the search term in the URL with %s.

For example, if you were using the Google search results URL, your search engine address would be http://www.google.com/search?q=%s.

@BugSir006 in the URL you have the ffollowing option:

Which you could include into this guide (I think it is easier do achieve in 2 clicks rather than: 

1On the top right, click the browser menu (Alt+F) > Settings > General > Default engine > Manage engines > Add search engine 

However at the moment I think it is broken because it redirects me to the Tabs submenu, instead of the edit search engines one.

If you change search engine, you will not be able to use features such as "Search images in Google".

Hi there, could you describe this issue in detail? I tried to add this Google image link to the search engine, it can be used.

When we change default search engine, shortcuts and features in Google Services are not available. For example; "Search image in Google" shortcut when we right click on image
