this:
google.com/

is the URL straight to the main page.

this:
google.com/ig?hl=en
is the personalized pg URL.

this:
google.com/webhp
is the 'classic home' link you get if you switch to classic off the personal page.

my question is: how can i make it so the www.google.com page always comes up? cause even if that's set to 'home'- if I close the browser and the personal page was the last page showing..thats what it will come up on. not the spare www.google.com page.

am i making sense?

google.com/url?sa=p&pref=i ...

that redirects to the webhp link. so if i use that, the classic google page then says 'make google your home page' once again.

it redirects to google.com, but also sets smth in the cookie. that setting toggles between /webhp and /ig.

The situation is very easy to understand.

* if you never go to google.com/ig, you won't have any problem
* if you do, every time you go to google.com or an address that normally sends you to the classic home, the setting from your google cookie will redirect you to google.com/ig. To go to the classic homepage, click on the link from the top-right "classic home".

Google suppose that by going to the personalized homepage, you expressed an option, so it saves it in the cookie.
