I want to somehow set up a browser to bypass annoying web pages that ask if I want English or French etc because I always select English. For example, http://www.ppt.gc.ca/

 

Is there any way to automate this process? Maybe a Chrome/Firefox extension?

Note the link that goes to the English site and bookmark it.

 

The site you linked to above has as the English homepage this: http://www.ppt.gc.ca/index.aspx?lang=eng

Thanks, Orange Blossom.

 

I'm hoping there is a solution that doesn't tie me to bookmarks and will work for any new site that I visit.

You understand that in Canada by law, companies must offer French and English. Seriously, is it that big an inconvenience? Sheesh!

@ battycoati,

I'm not aware of any means of going straight to the English (or other language) page of a site when the site homepage includes a language selection. I've done some searching and haven't found anything that says it can do that.

I think bookmarks is the only option here.

Okay thanks. Hopefully it's included in some future HTML or whatnot, that the site can see what language the browser is set to. Seems pretty simple and I can't imagine we'll still have to do it in the year 2200.

Would you not install a browser extension if it was available? I like to streamline :)

No. You're making a big thing out of nothing. We are talking about one click and Canadian government agencies are required by law to include both official languages. And that's the way it should be.

I can't even begin to imagine WHAT the tech. world would be like in about 200 years.

If we're still required to respond to ad hoc language queries I'm going to be very upset. Cmon, future :)
