I don't remember, been a while since I really played with it. But if I remember right they did have custom themes. There was even a "bike" one...I have seen both and have been equally impressed. I will be more impressed to see how they hold up to massive usage.

When on your personalized google page ( google.com/ig ) there is a selection on the right side to change the theme.

just more noise. I don't want everything I access to give me a smattering of distractions and toys to keep me busy.

Interesting, their "Seasonal" setting shows a winter scene. WTF? It's been spring since about 8PM yesterday.

I do like TeaHouse. Serene and calming, and the critters move.

This is pretty cool. I agree with Nicodemus with this being just more noise but, it's pretty noise.



Wait, did I just type that? This is what I get for it being 6:49am

I never see this stuff, probably because I always use the google search bar that's built into Firefox.
