I recently moved from Austria to Germany, but my Chrome (v35 beta) still searches in Google Österreich (meaning, google.at), rather than Google Germany (google.de).

I already went to Chrome's settings and changed my search provider to google.de:

However, it keeps reverting back to google.at when I restart the browser. Even after I do the change, the New Tab page shows me the old search domain.

Are there any other methods or ways to change the default domain?


The way it worked for me was to repeatedly enter random searches in the Omnibox (I think it was when I searched for Google) until Chrome asked me:

Would you like to switch to google.de (…)?

After accepting that, my search domain changed to the right one.
