Microsoft Edge Browser In China Will Use Baidu Search

By: 

Microsoft announced last week that the default search engine on Microsoft Edge browser in Windows 10 will be Baidu, not Bing.

The announcement read:

Together, we will make it easy for Baidu customers to upgrade to Windows 10 and we will deliver a custom experience for customers in China, providing local browsing and search experiences. Baidu.com will become the default homepage and search for the Microsoft Edge browser in Windows 10. Baidu’s new Windows 10 distribution channel, Baidu “Windows 10 Express” will make it easy for Chinese Internet users to download an official Windows 10 experience. Additionally, Baidu will deliver Universal Windows Applications for Search, Video, Cloud and Maps for Windows 10.

We remain deeply committed to delivering Bing around the world and we’re also committed to offering locally relevant experiences - like Baidu in China - to provide great Windows 10 experiences.

This is a pretty big deal for Microsoft and honestly makes a statement.

The obvious point, as engine said in WebmasterWorld, "there's an interesting fact there that is worth highlighting - Microsoft drops Bing as default search for Baidu in China."
