Use: http://www.google.com/ncr to disable. NCR=no country redirect. I've set this as my homepage and not had any issues

FANTASTIC TIP! This drives me (and 3 co-workers who will want to buy you a beer) insane - I travel a lot, and use proxies - so google is constantly swapping languages on me.

Though it makes me less worried about them collating all my personal information if they can't figure out I didn't suddenly learn to speak German ;)

There does not seem to be a way to use Google SSL + NCR. E.g.


does not seem to be a valid option. Is there a way to pass NCR in a param like ncr=1? Or the fact that Google SSL is used implies use of NCR?

EDIT: It looks like &ncr=1 does work but I'm not sure if this is equivalent to no country redirect.

Right now, this is what I have set up (which also disables personalization)
