    Well it depends on your browser.

    For firefox, type "about:config" in the search bar and enter, now look for "keyword.URL", right click it and modify. Depending where you want it to go, type it and enter.

    But for an automatic google search, put inside

    http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=

    For internet explorer, click "Tools" then "Internet Options", under "General" tab click "Settings" under "Search", right there you'll see your search providers. All you need to do now is set the one you want to default.

    That's weird, I always get one of those knock-off website which spells their URL with one letter different just so they can get hits from people spelling Google with an extra O.
