The report, from Web monitoring firm Hitwise, found google.co.uk topping the list in the UK in terms of both market share of visits (48%) and volume of searches (63.7%). The figures put Google UK ahead of its US parent, which Hitwise said represents 36.6% of all visits and 56.7% of all searches by US Internet users.

Generally speaking and for the broader audience, it takes Europe a couple of years in some cases to implement mainstream US tendencies. It was so with eBay, Google and now blogging. On the other hand the US is slower than Europe when it comes to cellphone market tendencies.

Or just click "Go to Google.com"
Does not work in Firefox's multi-search bar that I use: go to Google.com is not persistent, and redirect is extremely annoying and even on fact connection I feel delay that is totally unnecessary: if they want to use UK's datacenter then just return UK's IP on attempt to resolve google.com
