Did not try. On the other hand, google.com has ... how to say?, *restarted* to
work via tor (or I have been redirected to a different, francophone google,
will check the logs) thankfully.

I am multilingual to begin with. I use to visit google for an instant, even if
I don't need any services from it, just to see the IP of which country I have
inherited. (By the way, I typically get google in German.)

The main difference is ... should be, that the items are matched against
a given language with priority, which means that the sought entries may
be behind a lot in the list, eventually, and depending from the searching
criterii. (Examples: ada = VERY common verb in bahasa Indonesia.)

Another difference could be: selective censure. A third difference might be:
it becomes a bit harder for an expert program to guess/identify who is using
google. And the like, and so on.
