Google has always changed how their logo looks, changing font or adding additional pictures to it. Its almost a weekly event. Why is this all of a sudden surprising people? Aside from wondering what prompts each new design, why are people so confused and worried about new google images?

The HTML TITLE tag on the Google doodle images tells you what they're all about. In most browsers you just hover your mouse cursor over the image and it'll show you the image title text. I remember with the UFO doodle it said something like "H.G. Wells Birthday". I missed the "Googlle" one but it probably said something like "Google's 11th Birthday". There's no mystery here.

This literally just proves how stupid some people are. Is it that difficult to hover your mouse over the image and veiw the alt text that states what the reasoning behind the image is? I mean, 95% of the time that's all you have do with their logos.

The title or alt text did NOT explain what the double L was for. I saw it and even clicked on the doodle but it didn't go to a page that explained it.

At least theirs is not as bad as BigDownload's grammar and spelling.

In leet speak l can represented by the number 1.

In most fonts they are usually only a few pixels different, 1 ,l.

Google had a leet speak language for its homepage, but I am failing at finding the option.

(This post has been translated to English from leet speak).

I believe this is what you're looking for? http://www.google.com/intl/xx-hacker/

Seriously though, this stuff is a result of more people finding their way into the magical window of the internet and being stupid as usual.

Doesnt anyone ever hover over the logo? If you just plant your mouse on the logo it tells you whats so special about it being changed every time.
