On Google's 25th Anniversary, the tech giant, in a blog post, expressed a sense of reflection, highlighting the importance of birthdays as an occasion to reminisce. Google's story commenced with doctoral students Sergey Brin and Larry Page, who serendipitously met during Stanford University's computer science program in the late 1990s. Driven by a shared vision, they aimed to improve the accessibility of the World Wide Web.

From the confines of their dorm rooms, Brin and Page fervently worked on crafting a prototype for a more efficient search engine. As progress surged, they relocated their operation to Google's inaugural headquarters—a humble rented garage. This momentous journey culminated on September 27, 1998, with the official birth of Google Inc.

25 Years, One Mission: Accessibility and Utility

Though much has transformed since that pivotal year, including the logo highlighted in the anniversary doodle, Google's mission endures: to organise the world's information and ensure its universal accessibility and utility. In a heartfelt message to users, Google expressed gratitude for their companionship throughout the past 25 years and expressed eagerness for the uncharted future.

Google's Founding Philosophy: Organising Information for All

The ingenious name "Google" stems from a play on a mathematical term denoting a 1 followed by 100 zeroes. Brin and Page's aspiration was clear: to systematically arrange the world's information and make it universally accessible and valuable.
