    Well, it is true changing the default search is not easy as other browsers that we do with a single click. But it is not too hard as well. Here is the step by step process to do so:-

    Open your Flock browser and go to Tools Menu and click on Options.

    Now a dialog box will get opened.Click on the Searching Tab.

    Here you will see the default search engine box. You just need to select the Default engine from the drop down list whichever you want and save the settings.

    Thats it.. You are done.

    There is also an alternate way to do the same easily.Just open the Flock Browser and type about:config in the address bar. Now go to the Filter bar and type in search.Now modify the browser.search.defaultenginename property to Google. and then modify the browser.search.defaulturl to http://www.google.com/search?lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=.

    You are done. Default search will be changed to Google.
