    google fading in

    Anyone else notice that google is just the logo and search box until you move and then it fades in. What's the point?

    they said it was about being minimalist, or something like that. Don't understand either

    I guess they assume most people just use their keyboard when accessing google. I'd have to think most would be mousing over it, at the very least, just out of habit. Nice effect, but as you said ... pretty much pointless for most.

    That sure is a lot of custom minified JS for such a basic and minimalist look.

    Minimalism. The final redoubt of the unimaginative. The fallout shelter of the bewildered American marketing executive.

    "I want a home page like Google," last thing you hear before their phones are disconnected. If we're going to have a depression, can't we at least do it with a little panache?
