Google Inc., founded on September 4, has long celebrated its birthday on September 27. Marking its 25th birthday, Google delighted users with a doodle that took a stroll down memory lane, featuring different logos from over two decades. The doodle featured a captivating GIF that transformed ‘Google’ into ‘G25gle,’ accompanied by a confetti shower upon clicking.
The story of Google’s inception is rooted in the late ’90s when doctoral students Sergey Brin and Larry Page, both Stanford University computer science program alumni, shared a vision of making the World Wide Web more accessible. They worked tirelessly in their dorm rooms to create a prototype for a superior search engine. As their project made significant strides, they relocated operations to Google’s first-ever office, a rented garage.
Officially, on September 27, 1998, Google Inc. was born, a day the company now celebrates as its birthday. Despite numerous changes, including logo redesigns, Google’s mission remains steadfast: “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” Google expressed gratitude to its users for evolving with them over the past 25 years, with an eagerness to embrace the future together.
