IE7 defaults to AutoSearch not MSN.

I wish Internet Explorer 7 made it dead simple for people to change their search defaults. (It's not as easy as it is in Firefox.) That said, I think our position as reported seems wrong and, well, seems like FUD.

I like that IE's search box makes some attempt to figure out what you'd previously used for search. One thing I'm curious about though: if there isn't conclusive AutoSearch data is the default set to MSN? That'd be pretty weird, Yahoo or Google would be a much better choice. But I'm not sure - maybe someone else knows who reads this blog?

    Fud is a rude word in Scotland. Be careful how you use that.

    To the last commentor, FUD is used in a different context
