Last Tuesday, Google launched the home page themes. If you have a Google account and uses the personal home page then you probably know what I’m talking about. I noticed the press release somewhere but only had time to tinker with it today and was really amazed with the oh so cute headers!
There are currently 6 themes available and Google has programmed the graphics to reflect what’s going on in the outside world and the design will also contain Easter eggs or hidden surprises that will open up with an opportune click at the right time of the day.
Google will introduce more themes every month and maybe open itself to submissions someday.
I know Yahoo has had this long before Google but I think it’s a big step for Google since they have always been associated to plain whites.
“The use of more graphics illustrates Google’s evolution from a once-pure internet search engine into an all-purpose website that offers email, news, photo sharing, instant messaging, shopping and mapping services.”
