New Themes for Google Homepage

March 21, 2007

Slick new feature for the Google Homepage. I wake this morning (mid-late-afternoon) to find that Google has released a new feature for your personalized homepage. Themes. They’re cute and dynamic.

From the Official Google Blog:

All of our themes are dynamic: they change with your own local time of day, current weather conditions or season. If you add the beach theme, for example (changes with time of day), it will ask you for your Zip code and adjust itself to match your local sunrise and sunset times….

That’s fancy!

…We implemented our themes using a CSS framework so we can scale, and plan to push out many new themes beyond these six. So tell us what themes you want to see.

That’s smart. And collaborative! I feel fuzzy and good.
