When trying to navigate the vast landscape of the internet, search engines are no doubt one of the easiest and most useful tools. Here in the states, there are two main players — Google and Microsoft’s “Bing”. Google holds a majority market share though Bing is holding their own, slowly inching up month by month. Bing isn’t Microsoft’s first attempt at search but is by far their most successful. Perhaps it’s the improved searching algorithms. Or maybe, just maybe it’s all of those pretty wallpapers that cycle through the background of Bing’s page. Maybe you don’t like Bing, use Google, and just want a prettier Google experience. Well, now you can with “Skinggle“.

What at first sounds like some sort of x-rated toy is in fact a nifty website that allows users to skin Google with user generated pictures. Each time you visit the page you’re greeted with a different background. I’ll give the creators credit, while it isn’t nearly as good as a solution straight from Google, it is a clever and ingenious way to give Google a more customizable and personal flare. So the question is, would you use Skinggle on a daily basis or is it more of a novelty thing that will fade away after awhile?
