On a special day for technology, the web giant, Google, commemorates its 25 years of existence. As usual, the company has surprised users with a special ‘doodle’ on its home page, where the iconic Google logo has been transformed into “G25gle.” This celebration marks a milestone in the history of the Internet and the evolution of the most popular search engine in the world.
Since its birth, Google revolutionized the way people obtain information. Before, questions like “How do you cut a pineapple?”, they often found answers in cookbooks or through family and friends. Nowadays, any Internet user can get instant answers to their questions, both big and small, thanks to this search engine.
Google has evolved according to the curiosity of its users and has managed to adapt to their changing needs. A notable example was in 2020, when the most popular search was Jennifer Lopez’s dress at that year’s Grammy Awards. This demand led the company’s engineers to create “Google Images,” a feature that indexes photographs alongside web pages, thus streamlining image searches.
As we celebrate 25 years of innovation and usefulness, you can’t help but admire how Google transformed the way knowledge is accessed in the digital age.
