These pages explains a little
By "factory," I mean that Google Chrome comes with search engines for
Google, Bing, Yahoo, and maybe one other (?), and the browser lets the
user which is the default. These 3-4 initial search engines are the
"factory" where the word "factory" is similar to "factory settings."
Later as the user visits web sites, the browser automatically adds
additional search engines such as Youtube, CNN, etc. These are the
non-factory search engines.
If you have an idea for a better English string, I will consider it
(but probably not for 0.8.7---see below).

Thanks for the suggestion: I will think about it.
What I do now is freeze the strings, so the beta version will look
just like the final. As far as I remember, I have never broken the
string freeze. Version 0.8.6 was unique because there was no beta
version and because it was released so quickly, so the final version
had two untranslated strings for most languages.
