Google's fun antics

The font has changed, for one. I, as a graphic designer, am starting to see more and more companies use a sans serif font rather than serif (sans serif is a font like Arial with the straight lines, serif is like Times Roman with the curled edges.) just a newer trend, I think. One of my favorite sans serif fonts is Futura. We just changed our logo to that font.

Personally, I like the new Google logo.
I used to be a graphic designer and it always seemed to me that sans serif/serif fonts where on a 5 year rotation. "Cutting edge" companies would use the opposite of what everyone else was using and then after a few years everyone would follow. Personally I think either can look nice if done right in a logo but I can't stand serif in the body of a document.

Apparently it will NOT work in FireFox but will work in the following (according to some comments I found):
- Google Chrome
- Microsoft Edge (Win10's browser)
- Safari (both desktop and mobile it seems)

Sorry, I didn't know there was a limitation. I used it on Safari and TCS used it on Chrome, and it worked.

No worries Reba :) It got the QA tester in me running lol :). Kind of odd it doesn't work in FireFox though as most other Google easter eggs do.
