Google spruces up home page with background images

CALIFORNIA: If Google’s famously sparse home page is too plain for you, the company is giving you some more options. 
A bold photo of sand dunes replaced the white background to Google’s search box Thursday. You can replace the desert scene with an image of your own or others available from Google. Or you can stick 
with the classic format. 
In a blog post last week, Google said the move is aimed at making the “search experience more relevant, useful and fun through personalisation.” 
It also follows an artistic choice made by Microsoft’s search engine, Bing, which also uses images as a background to its search box.
