  What is  gws_rd=cr&ei= ?

            It just a cookie link redirected to your browser based on the country.

      For past few months when we type google.com it redirects us to our country site mentioning as
google.co.uk
google.co.in
google.co.kr
google.co.nz
google.co.au
with that an extra query like structure will be there.
like one of these https://www.google.co.uk/?gws_rd=cr&ei=S3FfUss8i5DfG9y1gtAL

Also see new revealed google URL gfe_rd=cr&ei

Here in ?gws_rd=cr&ei=
gws means Google Web Server,
rd means Redirect,
cr means Country.
(till this you can find in all websites)
 And the final ei means Engine Id and also some random combination of numbers and letters is a cookie sent to our desktop.
