With the playbook browser I can only choose Google, Bing, AOL or Yahoo as default search engines. I hate all of them I'd like to use Startpage, DuckDuckGo, or Yippy as my default search engine. How can I set this up. If I can't, why the heck not?? Can somebody help me.

You need to go into some sort of agreement with RIM, which involves cash to get your search engine pre-installed on all Playbook devices.
Thats just how it works. Search engines like Bing, and Google pay upbig $$$.

No, no, no, no. You're telling me that I have to pay big $$$ to RIM to insert an obvious convenience feature into their software. That's dumb. All I'm asking for is the obvious. This functionality should be built in to the browser. I don't care if they have defaults out of the box. They should allow the user to select his preference after purchase. Especially privacy averse search engines like google. RIM is supposed to be all security conscious and everything, well let me use a search engine that does not spy.

I agree user friendly = freedom of choice or at least customizable options.
BTW I have startpage.com as my home page.
