Google Chrome Tabs open in United Arab Emirates

Here’s a small ( but annoying) problem which has arisen a few times for me, and it always takes me a while to either figure it out or find somebody else who has.. Opening a new Tab in Google Chrome suddenly defaults my location to Google.uae instead of google.com.au. The solution is simple – try this.. Right-click in the URL bar, and select “Manage Search Engines” In the top box, you’ll see the currently available Search Engines. searchengines Most likely your default Search Engine will be some variant of Google. Select a Different search engine (any one!) and make it your default by clicking on the “Make Default” button on the right of the selected engine. Now, delete the Google entry with the delete button, far right of the line. Scroll right to the bottom of the search engine page, where you’ll see these input boxes. searchengines2 Enter a description (Google) in the first. Enter your choice of google country (eg google.com.au) in the second. And paste this into the third : http://www.google.com/search?{google:RLZ}{google:acceptedSuggestion}{google:originalQueryForSuggestion}sourceid=chrome&ie={inputEncoding}&q=%s When you press Enter, your entry will disappear, and put itself up in the alphabetical list of “Other Search Engines”. Locate it, and click on the “Make Default” button. This will move it to the top Search Engine box as your default, and fix your problem!
