I dislike it that Google automatically assigns the language it thinks it detects (This time it was a surprise, as DDG thought I’m connecting from Germany), without offering a clear option to change it. I guess I’ll start using DuoLingo (Or the upcoming open source alternatives!) again ;)

That would be funny! Maybe you can already do that on c/tor

But yes this is one of the thing that sucks with websites like these xD I live in Belgium and we have 3 main languages, I speak French but each time I open up Google related website in a private browsing window, I got all the pages in Dutch xD I don’t understand anything to Dutch.

This blows my mind as it’s not hard to get the user’s prefered language from the browser rather than basing it on a GeoIP lookup.

Yes xD the worst is when the language button is really hidden, or the word “language” is written in a language you don’t understand, so you can’t even find the button xD
