Google White

The Google background image in plain white is my new default setting.

Apparently there was quite the panic online last week as the world logged into their computers, booted up their web browsers and –gasp!– Google had changed its background image to a garish nature scene.

It didn’t take us very long to find the ‘Remove background image” link and change the background to this simple white option (pictured above), located very last in the Editor’s Picks.

Why stick with Google’s trademark colours when you can enjoy the classic simplicity of those rounded letters, lightly shadowed and wonderfully spartan in white?
