Forcing Google Chrome to use

Aug 15, 2011   //   by Leon   //   Blog  //  4 Comments

Here’s the scenario. You don’t live in the good old U.S.A., but you do want Google Chrome to use: for your searches.

The solution

  • Open Google Chrome
  • Click the wrench icon (top right hand corner)
  • Click Options
  • Click Basics (left hand column)
  • Click Manage Search Engines
  • In Other search engines add the following (there are 3 fields)
    Field 1 – Add a new search engine: Google USA
    Field 2 – Keyword:
    Field 3 – URL with %s in place of query:{google:RLZ}{google:acceptedSuggestion}{google:originalQueryForSuggestion}sourceid=chrome&ie={inputEncoding}&q=%s

    ***Note – Make sure this is pasted without any spaces or line breaks
  • Click Enter to save the URL
  • With the mouse, hover over the new entry that you’ve just created and click on the Make default button
