This makes searching for muenchen match münchen -- but it does not do the reverse. Searching for münchen will not match muenchen. Still, it's very useful for people like me who live in places that spell their name with a character not available on a en-us keyboard, but still use a en-us keyboard layout (because a de-de layout sucks for programming).
I am at google.de, but I have it set to use English, as my German is horrible. Not sure what I'd recommend here -- perhaps use whichever is not english, preferably, or the UI languge if neither is english?
I want to come work with you guys. that's awesome.
By the way, I've not been reading evan_tech because it was on my RSS reader, which went the way of the dodo when I hit work overload and stopped catching up on RSS. I'll friend you instead; I'm actually really interested in your work these days.
