Set Naver as default Chrome (Android) search engine

You can set your Android phone's Chrome browser to use Naver for all default search results.  Any queries you type in the Chrome URL bar will bring up Naver results, and highlighting a term in another app and using "Web Search" from the three-dot pop-up menu will also search Naver.

It's very easy to set-up:
  1. Visit Naver
  2. Search for literally anything
  3. Open Chrome's top-right "three dot" menu
  4. Choose "Settings"
  5. Choose "Search engine"
  6. Naver will now be a listed choice.
