That's what I meant to say. The meta hreflang links I've not seen being used by browsers directly as well.

comment Sitemaps: rel=“alternate” hreflang=“x” naming
The naming of a sitemap is its location. Look for location.

"hreflang links in your meta" - Just looking into it, but it seems to be an additional technical tool (like for example a sitemap) then something on the user-facing side. rel="alternate" hreflang="x" - Help Google serve the correct language or regional URL

The browser offers to translate if the content of the page is different to their preferred language, that is the feature I mean with the messaging part. You probably know it from chrome (offering the site with the non-automatic translation is sure much better and I like the compromise idea you outline on first sight, but it's new to me and probably to early for opinion [for me]). However, can you create a screenshot of it (if I may ask)? That would be cool, I can imagine that it's a nice principle worth to add a picture for.

Isn't it the case that users are using a translated search engine and that way should only see the results in their language (ideally). I just ask back because you deflect the usability issue back to the search engine (you do a compromise check then with headers, however browsers do it already that way, isn't that a duplicate-quadruplicate messaging?) Just thinking loud. About flags: don't like it either. For drop-down: this would be the classical part of user-interaction. List of links: Good to have in footer anyway.
