Description

Hello,
I was trying to get other results than the ones i got from my chrome browser using my real ip.
Using the request "motherboard xeon 2x cpu" on TOR
i get only FRENCH results in shopping.
My Tor ip is set to be a Romanian proxy (iplocation.net).
How come that TOR gives me results as if it knew that i was in France.
Does TOR accesses my computer cookies?
Javascript is not enabled.
I have set the highest security parameters possible.
TOR v6.0.8

What does this mean?

It means that using some random web page (eg: iplocation.net) to check your exit IP location isn't a good way to figure out what other webpages (eg: google.com) will see your exit IP as, and that the Tor network has a decent number of exit nodes in France.

Right -- to be clearer, Tor will use different exits for different destinations, and that's a feature. So when you went to iplocation.net, apparently you used a Romanian exit. That has nothing to do with what exit you'd use when going to google.
