The most popular internet search engine in the world, Google celebrated its 22nd birthday in much the same way as it celebrates all other major events – by means of a fun doodle.

The doodle shows the alphabet G wearing a celebratory hat, sitting with a laptop, a cake, and a birthday gift, making a video call with his friends. On the laptop’s screen are friends of G – O, O, G, L, E – the other alphabets that make up Google. All of them, it appears, are celebrating the birthday with G.

The doodle is apt in the current scenario, where most of us have been celebrating events virtually.

The doodle page also gives the history behind the word googol from where comes ‘Google’: While walking in the woods of New Jersey, American mathematician Edward Kasner asked his young nephew Milton Sirotta to help him choose a name for a mind-boggling number: a 1 followed by 100 zeros. Milton’s reply? A googol!

On the occasion of Google’s 22nd birthday, here are some fun facts about this search engine that has made our lives so convenient.
