Re: StartPage vs Google differences

You mean something like a language indicator in the url? ...I mean the language indicator and domain indicator contained in the search plugin located in the browser's profile folder.
in Opera Presto you can simply add the search strings while in Firefox or PaleMoon you will have to add search plugins after you modified them at your like.
I can't tell for other browsers I don't use but the principle should be much alike.
In Firefox and its forks the search plugin is a simple .xml file loaded during browser start and added to a search.json file.
If you have Firefox at hand you can test by typing in the address bar below string and hit ENTER:
https://www.google.fr/search?q=lolo+bono&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&num=100&hl=frYou should get google.fr. You can replace the search term "lolo+bono" with one of your like.
The above is only a test. With the appropriate search plugin you have to enter only the search term in your browser's address bar.
Edit: Please bear in mind that I have professional needs. I have a professional need, for example, to see Maps in Swedish, with place names in Swedish, like Ryssland instead of Russia or Venemaa, ...Sorry, I don't use Google maps and can't be of help.
However, a first search revealed that with some programming skills it would be possible.
