Google Canada is the Canadian version of the Google search engine. Results for queries entered into this version of the search engine will incorporate more Canadian references. Google Canada also comes in a french version. The search engine can be designated as the home page on any Web browser such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. As the home page, Google Canada will open automatically whenever the browser is opened.
