Sounds like a really useful tool.
I am always a little hesitant to download extensions until they have been used for awhile in case of problems. Is this approved by Google?
|When you do your search, simply right click anywhere on the search results page, select “Search Google Global” and select what country you would like to see the results from. It is as simple as that. |

tedster,this portion is not clear to me.Can you please explain?
tedster just gave us the download page and a simple instruction on how to use the extension.
Hi Tedster, thanks for the mention.
Tropical Island, it is unfortunately not approved by Google. How many apps or extensions actually are?
The tool was originally for in house use when managing international campaigns. How many times have you used either the ad diagnostics tool in AdWords or manually appended &gl=whatever to a query string? I know I have wasted a lot of time and energy doing it.
The tool is far from perfect, but something we thought others might find useful and hopefully have further ideas that will make it more useful. Besides, the price is right.
I'd love to hear any feedback. If anyone would like a feature added, I think feeding that back would help a lot of people.

You find on the site of the vendor of Google Global Firefox Extension [redflymarketing.com] plenty of info about usage and options
I hope this helps.

Does it matter? Your simply looking at search results.
Well i've just installed this, i was hoping that it would actually change domains unfortunately its doesn't :(
back to typing in .de .fr .it then.
Yes, I was also hoping there would be an option to check not only google.com in FR, DE etc version but also google.fr, google.de etc.
Maybe this will be upgraded in the future?
The thing is that even though the domain is changed to the country specific search property, the results are different depending on your geographic location. That is the whole purpose of the plugin. Otherwise it's only function would be to save you typing your country code after google.xx
However, opening the results in the country specific search property is a good idea for labeling purposes. I'll add it to the roadmap.
FF rocks, plain and simple :)
Any indication that search results may become more local in the future, e.g. any Muricans know if results for generic terms are the same from LA as they are from NY?
There is already a more fine-grained localization within the US. I'm occasionally seeing different SERPs from Boston, NYC and DC, and not just the expected east cost/west coast differences. So this Firefox extension may have a relatively short shelf life.
Tedster, you are right but we are already testing the next release.
It allows you to search by city, region and US ZIP code(Long and lat maybe in future release).
I would be interested however on any feedback or ideas on Glengara's question.
