Google Trick or Treat

Google Trick or Treat

by Jason GreenOctober 31, 2009

Looks like Google is tweaking its homepage again. Surf over to google’s front page today and, if you’re in a select “bucket” of users, you’ll find that the buttons for “Google Search” and “I’m Feeling Lucky” have been swapped out for a bit of new text:


That text does fade out after a few moments. But nothing appears to replace it.

It only appears to happen for me in Chrome. Anyone else experience this?

I also liked how the logo rotates through a few different logo’s showing candy, then empty wrappers before showing the actual Halloween search results.

    Yeah Yeah I know I haven’t posted in a while, I’m working on a new guide that’s really eating up a lot of editing and research time. More so than I thought, mostly because I want it to be as accurate as possible. It’s really good though, and I’m sure many people will like it, I haven’t found anything anywhere near what I’m bringing you next, so please stay tuned!

    And I haven’t forgotten you my friends who want Googlewave Invites! Google Wave activity has just really come to a standstill and I haven’t gotten ANYONE to wave back at me! It’s like being the only person on the planet who has e-mail or something.
