    We are now going to change the domain.
    It says "Google.ge is offered in:" the local language. This shows that we are currently using the local Google domain. We are going to learn how we can change that. If we're an English-speaking person, or if we're wanting to search in English, then this is a very useful function. It allows us to search using Google.com, which is a lot easier for English speaking people and people wanting to search for things in English.
