Chromium/Chrome to use google.COM to search

Finally managed to get Chromium (aka Google Chrome) to use google.com instead of my local google (in my case google.gr)

It’s a PITA as Google doesn’t respect the “use google.com choice in google.gr” or doesn’t respect the fact that my system and chrome is ALL in english (not sure where it understands .gr maybe via IP don’t know)

Had to rename Google search, make a new instead of {google whatever} wrote http://www.google.com/search?_AND_THE_REST_FROM_COPY_PASTE
in the URL section and it finally works.

ps. google.com is better than google.gr
