How can Google presume to change the language being used by a user?! I'm an English speaker and just because I live in my current country of residence does not mean I speak OR write the language. This is a global village, be international in outlook, don't 'assume' ASK.

Ask hundreds of millions of people a question – which is useless and annoying for most of them – or assume for all of them – which isn't friendly for very few of them. That isn't an easy question.

I believe that most browsers report the language in use by them. Why isn't that language used as the default?
