  • (2021-02-04) diego gullo: Set up language to german and instead it is still making requests with english accept-language: en-GB,en;q=0.9 It looks like several others have complained. If this tool is not supported anymore please remove the extension so people do not spend time testing it

  • (2019-05-21) Robert Gary: Did do anything for me. Chome still shows I have the same language and my headers haven't changed. Other similar tools stopped working about 6 months ago so perhaps Chrome no longer allows extensions to do this.
  • (2019-04-15) Roy: Doesn't work anymore with the newest chrome version. This one seems to be the only left working https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/locale-switcher/kngfjpghaokedippaapkfihdlmmlafcc.

  • (2018-03-26) Marco Cianetti: Doesn't work, check the "navigator.language" in the JavaScript console.

  • (2018-02-26, v:1.1) Tobias Friese: Label clickable
    Thank you for this extension and the recent update. The filter is a great improvement but now one cannot click onto the labels anymore. Only the radio buttons are active. You may want to fix that for better usability and accessibility. Additionally a little more vertical padding per entry may remove some clutter. Best Tobi

    Hi, Do you work as developer? I am interested on building a similar tool like this language switcher, but with some modifications and oriented to a given language. Are you interested?
