No problem, Chase. You don't need to rep me, I'm not looking for green blips.

Just here to help.

Google Chrome won't let me. I either get google UK or iGoogle. Weird.
when it loads google UK in the right hand corner of the options underneath the search box it will say "go to google.com"
or you could say,

Code:
google.com/ncr
to goto google.com
