Google celebrates 25th birthday with Doodle Down Memory Lane
Google is one of the most popular tech companies in the world and most of the people who have used the internet even once, are aware of Google Search. Google is the world’s most-used search engine and it has been on the top for the last couple of decades.
Over the years, Google has evolved and gone through several major changes but its key functionality remained the same. Google is now officially 25 years old and the company is celebrating its 25th birthday on (September 27) with a special Google Doodle that reflects on all the previous logos of the company. Google Doodle is a special way of marking any occasion and it also educates millions of users across the globe about that special day. As Google celebrates its 25th birthday, let’s have a look at the first-ever Google Doodle released by the company.
The pair worked tirelessly from their dorm rooms to develop a prototype for a better search engine. As they made meaningful progress on the project, they moved the operation to Google’s first office — a rented garage. On September 27, 1998, Google Inc. was officially born, the blog post read.
Emphasising that much has changed since 1998 — including its logo as seen in today’s Doodle — Google said that its mission has remained the same: “to organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”.
Two years later in 2000, Larry and Sergey asked current webmaster Dennis Hwang, an intern at the time, to produce a doodle for Bastille Day. It was so well received by our users that Dennis was appointed Google’s chief doodler and doodles started showing up more and more regularly on the Google homepage.
