    Have you guys tried "google.com/ncr"? NCR, short for no country redirect. :)

    Thanks ShadeDream. I had the same problem but I've set homepage to this below and now it's all good.

    Code:
    http://www.google.com/ncr
    
    By the way, NCR stands for "No Country Redirect". :D

    My bad, for some reason I always think of it as "No Cookie Redirect" lol.
