    This really started to annoy me lately that Google removed the option to make google.com the default search url. Instead it kept redirecting me to my national domain all the time.

    But there a solution!
    To get google.com back as your default url when not being a US resident is actually quite easy.

    Just add ncr to the url and voila :thumbsup:
