How to make English as the default language for Google Chrome’s Search

Filed in Internet 2 comments

When you travel to a new country and use Google search, you are immediately presented with a custom search featured in the language of that particular country. I have been finding this a bit irritating for a while, so I decided to look for the work around to make the default language as English permanently rather than change it every time with “View in English”

So here are the steps:

1. Go to Wrench > Options > Basics > Search > Manage

2. Select Add (which can be seen towards the bottom of the page where you add other custom search engines)

3. For “Name” and “Keyword,” type the letter “GOOGLE NEW”

4. For “URL,” enter

5. Click O.K.

6. Look through the list for ‘GOOGLE NEW’ and click on it to “Make default”

7. Click “Close”

There! you’re done. Test it by heading over to or search instantly from the address bar if you are using Google Chrome.

Happy Hunting! :)

If you use google Chrome it is impossible. I have followed the instructions of at least a dozen people and none of them work. I go to “wrench” and there is no thing called “options”. Chrome is shit.

Actually its there. Wrench > Settings > Search > Manage Search engines | and go ahead and enter the script. It should work for sure. :)
