Description

In the FAQ, https://www.torproject.org/docs/faq#ForeignLanguages, it says:

The easy way to avoid this "feature" is to use https://google.com/ncr.

That takes me to an "Error 404 (Not Found)!!1" page from Google. I'm not sure what the right URL should be but probably not a broken link.

That sentence was added by an anonymous contributor back when this FAQ entry was only on our wiki. I'm not sure what the original contributor would say now that Google has changed, so I've just deleted their comment[0]. The rest of the FAQ entry already provides another way to get Google in English. Thanks for pointing this out.
