You will have to ask Google, although I doubt that they will answer.
Are you sure that you don't have a cookie set in any of the browsers and
that using the same browser with forced refresh produces the same result
each time? Where the results computing platform sensitive? Was Lynx
set to send exactly the same Accept-Language header as the other browsers?
PS please do not start threads by replying to previous articles, it
breaks threading. Also please don't ever reply to digests as a whole;
that also breaks threading and results in useless subjects; if you have
a competent email program, it is OK to reply to individual articles from
digests, but not to use them to start threads.
Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
