Force your browser to open Google.com instead of Google’s localized domain

How to use Google with .com instead of country extension or force your browser to open google.com?

 

You have observed that whenever you open http://www.google.com, in your browser’s address bar, you are redirected to the local Google domain of your country (http://www.google.co.in for India, .pk for Pakistan, .lk for Sri Lanka etc).

 

Google web search is customized for all countries and regions across the world.
You can view all the countries domain or can view Google Search in different languages by Google Language Tool.

 

How can you force browser to open google.com?

This is really annoying if you are traveling or staying in a country which uses language other then English.Suppose, if you are in Japan then typing http://www.google.com will redirect you to http://www.google.co.jp, with full interface in Japanese 🙁

 

Another important thing is that Google’s search result depends upon your country (Google try to provide most relevant result).So if you are using Google from India (http://www.google.co.in), you will see slightly different results then the results from Google for US (http://www.google.com).The Adwords ads are completely different in different countries search pages.

 

So, for some reason if you want to use http://www.google.com instead of your local Google, then you can do it by a simple step.Just use the URL http://www.google.com/ncr in your browser’s address bar.Here ncr stands stands for No Country Redirect.Once you open this URL in your browser, it will create a cookie in web browser, which will stop redirection from Google.com to local Google domain.

 

To start the redirection again according to your country, just do clear your browser cookies.
