Where is the Google choice?

Just when I came back to IE (v9), I can't find Google as a search provider. I think that tt was there a while ago. Weird.

Try clicking the Get Add-ons drop-down list. It should offer you the chance to add Google as a search provider.

Don't forget, you can always add Google as a separate tab if you want to through Internet Options.

The choice that I miss is in Google itself...it no longer offers cached links, therefore won't display expired pages, nor highlight search keywords.

Exactly. So it was on MS UK site. Unless I missed it I don't see it "linked" in the UK gallery either.

When I searched for Internet Explorer Gallery I got this website called ieaddons:

Internet Explorer Gallery

Once in the site I had to click on add-ons (upper left, blue bar.)
That got me to an Add-ons gallery with no apparent Google add-on.
But if you click the Search button (upper right) and type in Google ...
It takes you to all kinds of Google add-ons.

Had the same problem as you from Canada, if the location is changed to United States as others have shown in their links the option of the google search and many other add-ons suddenly appear in the ie gallery.

Why do they make it so hard to change the search provider it's so easy in the other browsers.
