It's to celebrate the anniversary, and the fact that I only found out about 10 minutes to go shows how little I use the google homepage now, I suppose.  But well done, Google!

Pac-Man in '96? That's when the world was introduced to Starcraft.

The interesting thing is it caused total confusion with CoolPreviews Firefox addon. There was a bit of code left from previous revisions that for some reason accessed Google's homepage and as soon as you started Firefox the PacMan music started. They rushed out a patched version very quickly but not before a lot of people started scanning their systems (me included) for something nasty Wink
