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!
