Add a background picture to Google!

Posted in Finds with tags , , , , on June 8, 2010 by Mitch Leuraner

I feel like a chump.  I don’t know when it happened, but I just learned that you can change Google‘s plain white background!  I knew that you could choose different themes for the iGoogle portal, but I’ve never liked that – nor have I any use for most of the widgets on it.

Google Background Changed!

Google Background Changed!

But I use the Google homepage more times in the day than I can count, and I only just noticed the “Change Background Image” link that pops up near the bottom left corner of the page when you wiggle the mouse long enough to fade in the top menu.

Granted, you have to have a Google account, and be signed in … but I do and I am! Check out the picture. (Click for a bigger version.)

If you can’t beat them…

I really like Stumbleupon. I try to be careful, but I have definitely been known to completely lose track of time and stay up way too late stumbling around the web.  But even with all my stumbling, for the most part, I tend to see new (to me) sites each time.  I’ve selected so many interests in my profile that I don’t really have to worry about repeats too much – except, apparently, for this picture:

For some reason I keep coming across this picture – and not just on the same site each time.  It’s everywhere!!  And it makes me laugh every single time I see it…

So there it is – just in case you don’t stumble.
