25 years of Google means that Google search is also celebrating a quarter of a century. Every day, millions of people use Google Search to research answers, check facts or find out more about a topic – including via the respective Google Doodle (the event-related change to the company logo, for example at Christmas, Easter – etc.). also on today’s 25th birthday), of which there are already more than 5,000 artistic variations.
