Google turns 23, celebrates with special doodle

Google has turned 23 this year. The search engine is celebrating the occasion with a special cake-themed doodle on its homepage. The tech giant was founded in 1997, but was officially established in the year 1998 on September 27.
Sergey Brin, a graduate student at Stanford University met Larry Page in 1997 when the former happened to be assigned to show Larry Page, who was considering Stanford for graduate school at the time, around campus. By the next year, the two Google co-founders were building a search engine together in their dorm rooms and developing their first prototype.
“It’s said that one chance encounter can change the course of your life. In Google’s case, a chance encounter between two computer scientists changed the course of the Internet and the lives of millions”, a post on Google Doodle page says.
As per Google, there are billions of searches on its platforms in more than 150 languages around the globe everyday. “While much has changed from the early days of Google, from its first server housed in a cabinet built out of toy blocks to its servers now being housed in more than 20 data centers globally, its mission of making the world’s information accessible to everyone remains the same”, the post mentions.
