to Google's homepage today and users will notice that the internet
giant has incorporated a particle movement simulator logo.A
number of colored balls in motion make up the Google Doodle that
spells out the company name. As soon as users move their mouse
cursor along the name, the balls disperse. The
bubbly logo is a celebration of some sort, but there is only
speculation on what the super search engine is celebrating today.
Google regularly changes its display name on the homepage to mark
significant dates, holidays, and world events. When users
have clicked on the Doodle in the past, the reason for the design
shows up as a generated search result. Google may
be celebrating its anniversary --- the company usually marks this
event on September 7 or 27 according to Softpedia.
The balls appear to be divs styled with the CSS border radius
movement.There is also speculation that the Google is touting
HTML5, the latest version of HTML which offers more capabilities for
demonstrating interactive content on the internet. It could
also be Google's latest attempt at showcasing
its Chrome browser.Today's bubbly display is the third
interactive Google Doodle that the company has produced this year.
In May, Google helped celebrate
the 30th anniversary of the arcade game classic
Pac Man. An animated sphere was incorporated into the logo
last week to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of the discovery of
the "buckyball" carbon molecule.
