Making Google the Default Search Provider in IE10 and IE11

I hate that you can't do this directly in Internet Explorer as Microsoft wants us to use the appalling Bing search (sic) engine.  So, instead, just click on and add this as a Search Engine, then go to Manage Add-Ons and ensure the "Search in the address bar" checkbox is checked (should be), change the listing order to make Bing feel even more unloved and your searches in IE will finally be functional! :)

UPDATE: Microsoft has made it even harder to make Google the default search engine.  You nowe have to go to the URL above, which Microsoft will redirect, then you need to go to the URL again for the Google Search option to appear.  Go Microsoft - you bastards!
