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
always use the google toolbar so never notice it... btw i think the sg site is new n just opened? b4 that i tried never got that...

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 :D :D

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

hehe, me not working for google but i must say google is the best now, altavista is no longer famous. take a look at yahoo, it is using google, google rulez~ ;) accurate result, fast, simple, useful, what else to say?

mine would be "censored" :D

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.
