    Default Google Search Engine

    Did any one notice that when you keyed in www.google.com it gets re-directed to the www.google.com.sg site instead.

    What is happening ? Did some one just decided to impose censorship at the proxy server ?

    In any case.... you can still go to the real site at 216.239.33.100

    I dont think its censored. Maybe singapore has many google user, thats why google set his own. Or maybe google inc, afraid their name being used in sg

    So far I felt no diff between google.com and google.com.sg

    That's for performance. It redirects you to the nearest google server. I suppose in Malaysia, you will get redirected to google.com.my if it exists.

    Wow, so dated. google is a lot cooler, faster and more accurate. And even suggests corrected/different spellings.

    mine would be "censored"

    hahah!
    actually, i think the google redirection is based on IP... probably to maximise their performance...

    google must have set this site up recently...didn't see it before.

    for a list of 'redirectable' sites, please see the bottom section of this page

    http://www.google.com/en should take you to the actual google.com site.

    nowadays, when I search, I always use google. In fact, Opera browser has a google search built in, so I just type and click search in the browser, no need to go to google site first.

    I am in Malaysia, it goes directly to google.com when I search. No google Singapore.
