Google started it all as a prototype with just two computer scientists and now Google answers to billion of queries from users throughout the world and can provide answers in 150+ languages. Co-founded by Sergey Brin and Larry Page, Google is one of the most used search engines globally.
The story behind the search engine is quite interesting. In 1996, Sergey Brin, a graduate student at Stanford University, met Larry Page, who was considering Stanford for graduate school at the time, around campus. In just one year, two Google co-founders built a search engine together in their dorm rooms developed their first prototype. This is how Google Inc. was born in 1988.
While revealing this history, Google doodle page said:
“Every day, there are billions of searches on Google in more than 150 languages around the globe, and while much has changed from the early days of Google, from its first server housed in a cabinet built out of toy blocks to its servers now being housed in more than 20 data centers globally, its mission of making the world’s information accessible to everyone remains the same,”
