Google Turns 19 Today, Celebrating The World’s Most Popular Search Engine, We Bring You Google 19 Years Ago

Google is turning 19 and we needed to praise the world’s most prevalent internet searcher by flaunting some of engine’s early photographs. We googled Google and investigated Google.com from its introduction to the world till today.

This looks truly recognizable to any individual who began utilizing PCs in 2010 and stopped in 2016.
