Why would you do this? You've taken the trouble to install chrome... now you're searching through Microsoft? If you want to look like you're interested in security, speed and privacy but don't really care, why not simply make a Google Chrome skin for Internet Explorer? And better yet a MacOS or Linux one for your Vista PC?

How would I keep Google as my default, but for the rare instance that I want to search Bing (e.g., evaluate my website's search position on Bing), how can I execute the search using Bing for just this one time?
