Search Engines and Spain

    Anyone know how to work around the search engines' compulsion to send you to their local version when in another country - ie Spain?
    If I type in google.com, I get google.es. Same with yahoo. If I manually change the address again in the title bar, it reverts to .es as soon as I hit the button. I end up using .co.uk as that seems to be OK, it's only the dot coms. Anyone? There must be a fix to this?

    You will have to explore the proxy options.

      Thanks for that, Pearldiver!
      Had hoped there might be another option. One day I will google it for hours and if I ever find a simpler workaround, I'll post it.
