Google has turned 19 years old, Happy birthday Google

Whenever we have any question or doubt, we just 'Google it'. And today when Google has turned 19, it seems like it has been there for much longer than that.

Google is celebrating its birthday in the most fun of ways: with a Doodle that lets you play through the most fun Doodles ever. It has selected some of the best Doodles and assembled them into a meta-Doodle in the form of a spinner, which you can spin and randomly get onto any Doodle and start playing it.
Starting from its roots as a search engine, which quickly became so popular that the word "Google" continues to be used as a verb to mean searching the internet. To its rise as the web-based email service to Google maps and many other things, most of us have been lucky enough to see the rise and growth of this company.

Google has gone through many changes in its appearance over the years.  Google wrote “ipon clicking today’s Doodle, we invite you to explore 19 surprises we’ve launched over the past 19 years – including our brand new Search Funbox: Snake Game! So give it a spin and thanks for celebrating with us!”
All one needs to do is to go to the homepage, click on the cheerfully vibrant doodle animation, which will in turn take you to some of the equally vibrant doodle games that will, most importantly, help you forget the track of time.

Founded by Sergey Brin and Larry Page in 1998, while it traditionally marks its birthday on September 27 since 2006, the year before that it had celebrated its birthday on September 26.

The Google History
In 1997, one of Google’s co-founders, Larry Page, had just arrived at Stanford University to pursue his P.h.D in computer science. Of all the students on campus, Google’s other co-founder, Sergey Brin, was randomly assigned to show Page around. This chance encounter was the happy surprise that started it all.

From there, the two came together with a common goal in mind: to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful, a mantra that would go on to become Google’s mission statement. The two hunkered down in a garage – Google’s first office – and got to work.

Billions of searches later, perhaps the happiest happenstance has been how Google has grown throughout the past 19 years. Named for the number “googol” (a 1 followed by one hundred zeroes), Google inches closer to its namesake each year, currently serving more than 4.5 billion users in 160 countries speaking 123 languages worldwide.
