Windows 7: Google page now lets you set your own background.

Just tried to get google.com rather than google.co.uk so I could try the background thing.
Google Chrome won't let me. I either get google UK or iGoogle. Weird.

I like more the iGoogle frontpage. Works well for me.

Perhaps that's why I can't find it on Google UK

you would kinda think that if they did it for one they would offer it on all of them. I know for myself i would rather use the google that is focused on the things that are more local to me then the .com whole web deal. i know i wont use this interesting feature. Well at least until its put up on .ca then i will.

nice find! I read that they are rolling out this new feature to other countries too in the "coming days" so stay tuned!

P.S. look for the "Change background image" link on the bottom left of the Google homepage.
