Edge Insider (Chromium): Set Google as a Default Search Engine

I just installed Microsoft Edge Insider browser, which is a chromium (V8) powered browser by Microsoft. In this post, I am going to walk you through to setting Google, Yahoo, or any other search engine as a default search engine on Microsoft Edge Insider browser.

Microsoft has released 3 Edge Insider channels, which are Canary Channel, Dev Channel and Beta Channel. For home users, I always recommend the Beta Channel, which is the most stable, reliable, and less vulnerable.
