Google is 25 years old. It was started by two students in a college room and has grown to be the most popular search engine.
Two Stanford University students came up with a unique idea for an internet search engine that would sort and rank web pages during a planning session in their dorm room more than 25 years ago.
BackRub, which started out as a business, grew into Google, a company with tools like Gmail and Search that are used by billions of people. Its co-founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, are among the richest people in the world.
Even though Google Inc. was founded on September 4, the company has been celebrating its birthday on September 27 with special doodles on its search engine for more than a decade.
But this year, Google Inc. chose to “walk down memory lane” and show off a bunch of creative doodles, including doodles of their old logos, to celebrate this special day.
This year’s Google Doodle is a GIF that shows the word “Google” going through a number of changes until it becomes “G25gle.”
The tech giant said that today was a “time to reflect” and that it was still looking to the future.
“Google is 25 years old, and today’s Doodle celebrates that. Even though everyone at Google is focused on the future, birthdays can also be a good time to look back. “Let’s take a trip down memory lane to find out how we were born 25 years ago,” Google wrote on its blog.
Sergey Brin and Larry Page started Google in the late 1990s. They met in the computer science programme at Stanford University, where they both went to school.
They both wanted to make the World Wide Web easier to use, so they worked hard in their dorm rooms to make a prototype of a better search engine.
“As they made real progress on the project, they moved the business to Google’s first office, which was a hired garage. “Google Inc. was officially born on September 27, 1998,” says the blog.
The company also said that a lot has changed since 1998, but that its goal has stayed the same: “to organise the world’s information and make it accessible and useful to everyone.”
Google thanked its users for “evolving with us over the past 25 years” and said, “We can’t wait to see where the future takes us, together.”
Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google, wrote a note last month about the company’s history to mark its birthday.
He thanked Google’s users, workers, and partners for their contributions to the company’s success. He also talked about the company’s role in the evolution of technology and its plans for the future.
He also praised the ongoing task of coming up with new ideas and the hard work of both past and current Google employees.
In his note, Pichai also talked about how important it is to come up with new ideas and adapt to new situations. He acknowledged that technology that was once amazing became commonplace quickly as the limits were pushed further and further.
