Google Forced New Personal Homepage

I think I have been logged into Google when I hit google.com before and gotten the "classic homepage".

Today, I just went there and I got my personalized Google page as the [google.com...] homepage.

Have they been doing this for awhile?

I'm only aware of this when you are signed in.

I just now checked, I'm signed in and still get the normal default page, with a link top right for the personalized page.

Just realized...I DO get this when I go to google.com but when I access using a number such as 64.233.167...I don't.

As far as I understand it, if you recently visited Google's Personalized home page and then went back to Google.com while signed in, Google will always take you back to the Google Personalized home page. The only way to get back to Google.com's main search page, while logged in, is to click on the Classic Home link, and Google will remember you want the Google.com results. That is until you click back on the Personalized home.

Because cookies are specific to a particular domain, so presumably they can't tell you're you.

best, a.

That's it. But at times I've noticed that other browser windows that were open at the time Classic was selected still go to the Personalized page. If they're closed then the browser windows will afterward to to the Classic homepage.
