Now, it is omni-present across all our gadgets and almost everyone on the planet is heavily reliant on Google tools and services, both for professional and private purposes.

As part of celebrating its 25th birthday, Google shared a blog post thanking its users and how the success was made possible because of their support. Google shared, “We may be a technology company, but Google is what it is today because of people: Our employees, our partners, and most importantly, all the people who use our products. So as we celebrate our 25th birthday today, we're also celebrating 25 years of your curiosity.”
