I have actually seen way worse. It wouldn't be the first time a site defaults to French, because hey you're located in Switzerland after all right...
@schoentoon Reminds me of the issues I had with F-Droid. It would include a mix of English and Norwegian, even though I had my phone set to British English.
Turns out I had to include US English in the list as well because apparently my location's default language makes more sense than falling back to any variant of the same language group...
@FiXato That sounds insanely stupid, but also a nice reminder of why I tend to set things to en_US by default.
@FiXato With firefox fingerprint resistance it's just "en_US" and that's about it. And functionally barely any difference because barely any sites seem to properly support it anyway. The only one that does it properly I found since I realized this whole is admin.ch which properly returns german when specifiying de_*, french for fr_*, italian for it_* and english for anything else (not sure if there's even a specifier for romansch tbh)
@schoentoon huh... that's quite interesting!
@FiXato at least Google Maps is one of those sites that at least stores this information in your cookies... Seen too many that just don't
