Tired of the plain white background that your favorite search engine bears? Well, it seems even Google is. They are trying out a new feature where you could set your own pictures as Google’s background.
It makes your search experience richer, personal and your own. Google is rolling out this new feature to users in the US and other countries internationally should expect this feature soon. You should see a link in the lower left corner of the screen using which you could upload pictures from your computer, choose from your Picasa Web Albums or choose from the large selection of pictures available in the Picasa Public Library.
Google will even provide you with an option to switch between the classic view and this new view. Customizing is not completely new to Google; iGoogle tries to do a somewhat similar thing but has loads of additional items which make it slower.
