Below the search box it reads


I have no idea what this means. FYI I am on a mac (using camino to browse) and have never recieved any crap that I have noticed. This one has me a little worried.

Anyone seen it before?

I saw the same thing searching using Safari this AM. Seems to be gone now.

It should stand for something like: Lock Geo Redirect and Goto Site.

It looks like MSN is working on geotargeting. When I got to MSN search today, I notice that I was redirected to [search.arabia.msn.com...] instead of [search.msn.com...] - The results for them are quite different to certain degrees.

This Beta is very poor because I am NOT in Arabia but MSN thought my IP was there...Quite funny.

I was also redirected to MSN Arabia Search, and I don't live there.
