    Just type the following website into your TouchPad:

    http://crowza.com/bing

    Then wait for it to appear and add the search engine. This will give you a nice (large) Bing icon as well. Had to create it from scratch.

    Will try this later... Thanks!

    Is it possible for you to provide links and official looking icons for websites like IMDB, or Fox News?

    Great idea! First, I need to update the Bing icon to have the same icon "effect" of the default icons. Just give me a list of sites you want me to add and I'll do my best.

    Thank you. I prefer using Bing over Google and had been wishing there was a way to make Bing the default search in 'Just Type'.

    Why does this not work on the Pre+ 2.1.0? I keep getting an error stating "Unable To Load Page".

    Hmm.. Good question. I've only tested it with the TouchPad so far. I only have my FrankenPre and my Touchpad with me today. I'll test it out on my Pre2 tonight.

    How about for the search engine in the browser itself? Anybody figure out how to change this on the TouchPad? I don't particularly understand why its choices are separate from the "Just Type" selections nor why it only has Google, Wikipedia, and Twitter (seems like a strange collection to me). The instructions here seem a little outdated, unless I'm missing something:

    Patch Browser Global Search Addons - WebOS Internals


    Thanks!

    Crowza did you ever make any other major website icons like your bing one?

    agreed.
    I use the browser search much more than the "just type" this is a great start, and I appreciate knowing other people have the same desires that I do.

    Hi, Google has changed tack and has made search and browsing nigh on useless. I want to switch to Bing but it seems that this is harder than 1st thought (via Just type...) is there any chance of this being updated to work with a Pre3? Currently I get a "ERROR 404 - File Not Found!"
    Thanks.

    Just tried this in the 2.2.4 emulator and it works fine. Bing as default search engine?
    Want to keep up with my exciting new projects? You know where to find me.

    No luck with this then? There must be demand given that Google are messing everyone about and the promise of a "nice icon" makes me hope that you can update this!
    Also, does anyone know if we can get the "suggest" function working with Bing?
    Thanks.

    P.S, if you do get it up and running again, can it also work on the Pre3? A lot of us on here would be grateful.
