How to disable google.com country redirect for all browsers


Further to my last post, on how to change the default google country redirect, I found a really good way if you want google to stop redirecting you to the version for the country that you are in.

Quite simply, just point your browser to http://www.google.com/ncr (<- yes click on it)

This will quite simply set a cookie in your browser which will stop google from redirecting you… and will make you ‘stick’ to google.com

(This is for my friend Grzegorz :) Since he asked me about this for FireFox this morning)

Hope it helps!

  1. I’ve been using this little trick for ages now :-)

    I really hate it when I sit on someone else’s computer and see the words “Inhossni Xxurtjat” “Stampi” “Ittraduci” “Gruppi” blaa.. blaaa.. blaaaa.. in front of my eyes.

    Maltese must be the least web compatible language :-) (atleast from the very few languages I know)

    Thanks for spreading the word!

    1. Definitely :) Recently I got an automated email from MS in Maltese, I was in fits! (Disclaimer: I am an avid promoter of the Maltese language, but as you say, it is not well suited for the interwebs)

anything to say?
