10 Are you sure you aren't being sent to the Portuguese version because
11 Google finds your IP is in Portugual and redirects you to where it
12 thinks you want to go? I've seen this in .de, .br and .ph, so I presume
13 it's the same in other countries.
14 I also don't want the national versions so I go directly to
16 where the redirection doesn't happen. Works fine in any browser here.
18 cheers!
