shift to duckduckgo complete

i am using duckduckgo as search engine for quite sometime. however, the default option in the chromium remained google.

with the recent update to chromium version 33, the new tab page started showing  a huge +Google doodle and +Google Search™  bar. did not like it. unfortunately, there was no way to return to the previous "new tab page"!

so changed the default search engine from google to duckduckgo. the earlier "new tab page" did not return but at least the huge doodle and search bar vanished.

why could +Google not restrict these changes to chrome and leave chromium alone? just wishing now for a way to return to the previous "new tab page" or to have a little bit bigger thumbnails .
