Google changing its logo
September started with Google changing its logo to a more modern and simplistic one. Google start page now looks strikingly simple. Though the Internet is still not sure whether they like or not, the rebranded logo of Google seems to stay for long.
In fact it is not only logo that was changed. The new identity release includes a number of minor tweaks that together make up for really good and consistent User experience. On the technical side of the question is, for example, the fact that now Google logo would look the same for user with any broadband connection. This way Google shows that it became more unified and applicable to people of all ages and any countries.
