I accidentally installed Ask Toolbar, and it changed my Homepage,Search engine and added some extra stuff. It did all this without alerting Google Chrome!
But when I try to install a legitimate search engine like DuckDuckGo, I have to do a lot of manual work compared to the Ask Toolbar which seems to automate installing the settings.
I was wondering why does't DuckDuckGo use the same methods as Ask?
Is it due to security issues of sorts?
