Initially introduced in 1998 to mark the Burning Man festival, they were at first created by the company's co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page before an in-house team called Doodlers was established to produce them on a more consistent basis.

Earlier this month, Google had launched a new search engine for the scientific community that will help them make sense of millions of datasets present online.

Google is making search results increasingly visual with computer vision. It will even let you crop images straight away without having to use snipping tool for it.

The feed, which launched past year and now has 800 million monthly active users, is being rebranded as Discover.

One of the innovations that Yahoo brought to search before ceding it to Bing was its emphasis on searching through exploration: Yahoo's algorithmically generated homepages would encourage you to click a topic and explore it, generating more and more clicks as you delved deeper. Think of the times you are typing in a question in the search bar and about 10 prompts crop up?

A little, unnamed control panel icon will push more or less content to your feed-your choice.

As part of the three fundamental shifts Gomes describes, Google is launching major updates to its search experience, including a new name, a fresh look, and a brand new set of features.
