I have a Nexus One with Android 2.3.3 and I use the default browser. My phone doesn't have "Swedish" as language setting, so I use English.

I have looked in the settings but couldn't find it. Any suggestions?

I'm sure for the android browser the locale is done on Googles side. Are you signed into google? I would set the location like I said. If your in sweden and the site is a good one you should get .se :-) – Blundell Oct 3 '11 at 16:46
