How to Disable or Fake Your Location in Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer

Modern browsers including Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer now include “geolocation” services based in the browser. What this does is attempt to locate you based on your IP, wi-fi or network location. It is used for several reasons, including adding a location to your tweets or Facebook updates, or to locate you on a map. You might want to hide or fake this location due to privacy concerns, and it isn’t too terribly hard to do so.
