I can't see the logo on Google.com
Is it also geo targeted? :|

Yep. David, as always, try this:

google.com/webhp?gl=us

;-)

> google.com/webhp?gl=us

keywords: switch to google usa us homepage

Sorry, I was looking for this some minutes ago and didn't find the link, I hope this helps next time :)

Thanks, this is a brilliant way to switch to Google's US homepage. I didn't know you could switch to the US version of Google's homepage using a simple parameter. Maybe Google should have more options to go to the different versions of its homepage.

On a more serious note, I wonder how you could get the holiday logo in Gmail. The gl parameter doesn't work.

Note: It's not actually the same as Google's US homepage as it still contains the link "Go to Google UK" for me, but it does seem to change certain geo-targeted items.

It's odd that google.com/webhp?gl=fr doesn't change the UI language to French but google.com/webhp?gl=uk changes it to UK English.

gl doesn't have anything to do with the language. You should hl to change the language.

I see the Thanksgiving logo on Gmail's login page.

Yeah, that's exactly what I thought. But if that's true, how come the language changes from US to UK English then?

[put at-character here] Ionut:
I can't, but i did notice there's a new spam icon.


mail.google.com/mail/help/imag ...



(Notice the link has word " New "..)

The old one was :


mail.google.com/mail/help/imag ...



Why did they change it? :/
(Sorry for taking this issue to a different subject)

Maybe I need to wiki-search what the heck is this celebration. In every US cartoon or movie this event appears, and the only thing I know is they eat turkeys.

I wonder how many vegetarians will use ask.com after today when it loaded with a HUGE turkey in their face.

... vegetarians... or designers :)
