Google! Beta (c) 1998

I enjoyed seeing this WayBack Machine version of Google in 1998. I found it funny how the grey ‘beta’ lasts to this day, though in a slightly different font.
In particular I love the 1999 logo page: ‘feel free to download one of the following “stickers” of our main logo’, ‘Here is our main logo full size, created using GIMP. If you want to hack on it, here is the XCF file.’,'… and some of our faithful users have even been inspired to produce their own versions of the Google logo, including this animated GIF by Travis David Freeland:
