I use google.com.au because it offers the 'pages from Australia' option,
which I've found particularly helpful when shopping for products sold
nationally.  Without that option selected, it's just google.

Seeing we're dealing in anecdotes here: the other day I used the 'pages
from Au' selection hunting for a particular model Atmel microcontroller.

The single result returned was futurlec.com, based in Broadmeadow NSW,
whose nameservers are au.com (Netregistry), both NS + A IPs being in AU.
