Let's move before they raise the parking rate.
I know this is not in the correct section, but I've shoved it in here for maximum exposure for the mo'.

To remove the crappy background image which Google has just introduced, use the following URL instead of your normal one.


If Google is your homepage, then you will need to update the address to suit.

Cheers,

Maybe it depends on what browser you are using? I'm using firefox and haven't seen it.

For how much time you spend on the google home page,just a second or so to use bookmarks, i quite like it.

Seems to have stopped now, I just left it as it was, only ever on it when searching and only takes less than a second. Some of the images where nice though but wouldn'ty want it changing everytime.
