If you were lucky enough to catch yesterday’s Google search page, you would of had the opportunity to have fun with interactive balls that made up the logo. The balls reacted to the movement of you mouse, and bounce around.
Today if you go to Google you will be presented with a greyed out Google logo. When you start typing in the search box the Google logo fills out each word with the standard Google colours. So, when you type just one letter only the Google ‘G’ will change colour. If you were type the whole word ‘Google’ for example, you would fill up the colours on the whole logo.
No one exactly knows why Google is doling all this, but the two main theories are that they could be celebrating the 12th anniversary of their official incorporation on September 7 1998, or they could be trying to encourage people to update their browsers. Many people using older versions of Internet Explorer would be unable to see these interactive pieces.
