We have all been there: you need to google someting, so normally you would just select your term in your CAT, copy it to clipboard, then switch to a webbrowser, google it, and then switch back to your CAT to continue your work… And after a while, all this copying and window switching might just get a bit tedious.

Google search with Google Chrome

Sometimes, Google might start doing troubles – it thinks that you are a robot, and displays the following prompt:

“I am not a robot” Google Search prompt

This is very inconvenient, as it effectively renders all searching useless.

If this happens frequently, you can redirect all your searches to a genuine instance of Google Chrome. Of course, this only works when Google Chrome is installed on your system. Unfortunately, Google does troubles with other browsers, such as Firefox, Opera, Edge…. so Google Chrome is the only option to get rid of the above prompt.

If Google Chrome is installed on your system, you can check the “Use Google Chrome for googling” option on “Language&Settings” tab:
