Google has done it again -- they just made something available for Google Personalized Homepage that could have a very positive effect on the number, or at least the loyalty of people using the personalized homepage.  Currently, I have mine set to "Beach" -- a fairly tasteful and relaxing theme from what I can tell.  While writing this article, I've had at three people come up behind me at work here and ask me how I got my Google to look like that -- that says something about how sticky this new feature is going to be.


Here is a list of themes currently available:

  • Classic
  • Beach
  • Bus Stop
  • City Scape
  • Sweet Dreams
  • Tea House
  • Seasonal Scape

Every theme (with the exception of "Classic") can be associated with your location -- picking up either the time of day or current weather conditions to give your homepage even more of a personal touch.

  • countries other than america

    I was just wondering, do you know if the seasonal changes in theme will be included in non american locations? I am in South Africa, and the themes I have tested don't seem to reflect our current weather. It's a bit frustrating not being included in these things for example - google checkout is still not available to South Africans. We are possibly one of the fastest growing internet markets in the world.

  • Not for me either!

    It is not working for me either and no one from Google has responded to pleas for help.
