Yesssss! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It is crazy that Google ignores both browser language settings, and their own search preferences to relocate ex-pat searchers to a site AND LANGUAGE that they can not understand.
This add-on does the business and has saved me endless frustration. It effects quickdrag too because quickdrag uses the search bar default.
The only problem was that I did not realise I had installed the addon. I clicked the link. Nothing seemed to happen. I clicked the link again and then it complained that a search engine of the same name had already been installed.
You have to change the search engine default from the icon to the left of the search box to the one that says "com" in tiny letters at the bottom.
