Okay, so Chrome (or other holders of Google Accounts too, perhaps) might already know of this. But it was a first was me. When you open your Chrome (and are signed into it) on your birthday, you will see a birthday doodle. Hover your mouse over it and the tooltip will read your name. How’s that for special!
You have to give it to Google to make everything (other than the Adsense checks, that is) downright impressive. Right after I gave up on Microsoft Outlook after several glitches and moved to the extremely efficient Gmail as a host for all my POP3 mail accounts, I had another surprise in store on the morning of my birthday – and a rather sweet one I’ll say 🙂
