Google on Saturday wished itself a sweet 16th birthday with a party-mode doodle.
Visitors on the page were greeted with an animated doodle in which the letter ‘G’, which dons a cute birthday cap is shown first marking the height of letter ‘o’ and then that of the taller letter ‘l’ on the white wall next to it. The letter ‘o’ is first ecstatic to see itself that it has grown so much since the last recording, but later appears gloomy after it realises that the letter ‘l’ is so much bigger.
The doodle also features a tab, which when clicked, allows the user to share the same on Google+, Facebook and Twitter.
It’s been sixteen years since Larry Page and Sergey Brin launched Google at a garage in Menlo Park, California in 1998. From that humble beginning, Google has over the years emerged into world’s most loved search engine.
