i've got a very annoying problem in Chrome on my Nexus 4 (posting this here, as it should be the same for the Nexus 5). I've changed my phone language settings to Spanish a few months ago, but didn't like that Chrome was sending this information to every page, resulting in Spanish google results and so on. So i changed the system language back to English. However, Chrome is still apparently sending the information to display the Spanish version of every page i'm visiting. It's very annoying and it's been months since i've changed it back to English, and it's still doing this.

Any idea how i can fix this?

EDIT - short version: The browser itself is English, but it's requesting the Spanish version of websites - even though system language is set to English.

Clear google chrome data/cache and reconnect your Google account with chrome.. If it's still Spanish then check whether the Google account you have connected has Spanish set in it's settings?!

Uninstall chrome and reinstall chrome beta, while your at it, click on settings and bandwidth you can save 33%through compression etc. I'm lucky to be on 3 UK but those who are not it's a good saving
