Add Your Own Background Image to Google

Google Background

Now you can add your own background image in Google homepage! Just click on "change background image" and choose an image either from your own computer or from one of the choices given by Google, and you will enjoy your new background in no time.

Before trying it out I thought this is quite a useless cosmetic thing, but after plugging in my recent Great Ocean Road shot (pictured above) it worked very well, and I am in love with it :) The fact that the Google symbol and the search bar is located amongst the clouds is quite symbolic of the whole "knowledge in the cloud" idea of the Internet too.

Try it out and see whether you like it as much as I do!

Hey, the guys at my internship were just trying that out too!

It IS a useless cosmetic thing...but don't we all like useless things sometimes? :P

And yeah, your pic is really suitable for this page ^_^
