On this day in 1998, Google Search, the world’s largest search engine, was introduced. In celebration of its 25th anniversary, Google has released a special Doodle showcasing the evolution of its iconic logo over the years. The company expressed gratitude to users for their continuous support and growth over the past quarter century, expressing eagerness for the future.
The Formation of Google:
The journey began when doctoral scholars Sergey Brin and Larry Page crossed paths in Stanford University’s computer science program in the late 1990s. Recognizing a shared vision of making the World Wide Web more accessible, they initiated the development of a prototype for an improved search engine, starting from their dorm rooms. Substantial progress led them to establish Google’s first office, a rented garage, officially giving birth to GoogleInc. on September 27, 1998.
Google’s mission, as emphasized on today’s Doodle, remains unchanged over the years—to organize the world’s knowledge and make it universally accessible and valuable. Despite the significant evolution of Google’s logo, this core objective has been a guiding force.
Encyclopedically, Google is utilized by billions of people worldwide, shaping how individuals search, interact, work, play, and engage in various activities. It has become an integral part of daily life, providing access to information across diverse fields.
AlphabetInc. and Dominance:
As one of the top five tech companies, AlphabetInc. serves as the parent company of Google. The reorganization in 2015 led to Google becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alphabet. Recognized as “the most important company in the world,” Google stands out as one of the most valuable brands globally, attributed to its dominance in numerous fields, including artificial intelligence.
On its 25th anniversary, Google continues to lead the way in technological advancements, reflecting its commitment to innovation and the global community it serves.
