'In an update to the chromium engine, which underpins Google's popular
Chrome browser, the search giant has quietly updated the lists of
default search engines it offers per market -- expanding the choice of
search product users can pick from in markets around the world. Most
notably it's expanded search engine lists to include pro-privacy
rivals in more than 60 markets globally. The changes, which appear to
have been pushed out with the Chromium 73 stable release yesterday,
come at a time when Google is facing rising privacy and antitrust
scrutiny and accusations of market distorting behavior at home and
abroad'
