The world's favourite search engine, Google has turned 23 today, on the 27th of September, Monday. Google Doodle has even come up with a suprise doodle on the homepage.

A birthday candle replaces the letter "L" in "Google" in the Google doodle, which shows a cake with the number "23" inscribed on top of it. Google was however officially launched on September 4, 1998. Though the company had celebrated its seventh birthday on that date for the previous seven years, it opted to move the celebrations to September 27 to coincide with the announcement of the search engine's record number of pages indexed.

Larry Page and Sergey Brin founded Google Inc. in 1998 to market Google Search, which has now become the most popular web-based search engine. With the help of Scott Hassan and Alan Steremberg, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, undergraduates at Stanford University in California, devised a search algorithm known as "BackRub" in 1996.

The search engine quickly became popular, and the growing company relocated numerous times before landing in Mountain View in 2003. This was the start of a period of fast expansion, with the company going public in 2004 and swiftly becoming one of the world's largest media organisations.

As the world celebrates the birthday of the best 'online saviour', who is now irreplaceable, have a look at how Twitter users have reacted to Google turning 23:
